Consumer Recall: Walmart Marketside Grab and Go Sandwiches

by Tara Kuczykowski on August 25, 2010 · 5 comments

walmart recallI usually post recalls on Fridays, but this one seemed too important to wait.

Zemco Industries has recalled approximately 380,000 pounds of deli meat that may be contaminated with listeria, a bacteria that can cause a potentially fatal disease and is especially dangerous for pregnant women, infants, the elderly and anyone with a compromised immune system.

This meat was used in Walmart Marketside Grab and Go sandwiches, including the following varieties:

  • Black Forest Ham
  • Hot Ham, Hard Salami, Pepperoni and Sandwich Peppers
  • Virginia Brand Ham with Bacon, Sandwich Pickles and Peppers
  • Angus Roast Beef

The packages bear the vendor number "398412808" and the USDA mark of inspection and have various "Use By" dates ranging from August 20 to September 10, 2010.

It's important to note that there are no reported illnesses from consumption of these sandwiches, and the recall is just a precautionary measure.

The press release does not include information on a refund, but I'm assuming you can return the sandwiches to your local store for a refund.

I saw this earlier. Thankfully, we don't have any in our house. The egg deal scared me enough.

But unfortunately, veggies have had a problem too. Unless you go local and organic.

My husband bought one of these Marketside sandwiches from our local WalMart here in Meridian Idaho and it made him sick. (It made him 'puke'...he almost never complaints about anything.) He said he took two bites and said it tasted bad. He opened up this sandwixh and found a eight inch slice of RAW bacon! So was it the lunch meat contamination or thr RAW bacon?
