Ready-made sandwich wedges from Lipari Foods were recalled after a potential Listeria contamination was found.

The recall covers Premo and Fresh Grab wedge sandwiches distributed from Warren Michigan throughout Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Listeria monocytogenes is a species of bacteria that causes fever, muscle aches and stiffness, nausea, and diarrhea. Those at highest risk for Listeriosis (a listeria infection) are young children, pregnant women, the elderly, and anyone with a compromised immune system though healthy people may suffer short-term effects as well.

ID numbers for the affected products can be found on the FDA recall announcement here.
