  • Fit & Active branded Southwest Veggie Stuffed Sandwiches, sold in nine (9) ounce bozes with production designations of Julian code: 20027230003106:15 BEST BY FEB 09 2019 or Julian code: 20027235003115:13 BEST BY FEB 14 2019 and a UPC of 0 4149815117 1

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the FDA, the potential for contamination of the Veggie Sandwich Wraps was discovered after a primary ingredient supplier, McCain Foods, IL, announced it was recalling certain frozen vegetables which are ingredients used in the product due to suspected Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella contamination.

The recalled Veggie Sandwiches are thought to have been distributed between 08/22/2017 and 09/20/2017 to ALDI retail stores in Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Vermont and West Virginia. The Veggie Sandwiches were also available for purchase to ALDI customers in the Atlanta area through the company’s partnership with Instacart, a grocery delivery service.

Because the Veggie Sandwiches may have been kept frozen in home freezers for some time, there exists a non-zero risk for consuming contaminated product that was purchased months ago. Consumers are urged to check their freezers for the recalled Veggie Sandwiches, especially those whose production dates fall within the parameters listed above.
