Turkey Sandwiches Recalled From Multiple Grocery Chains

On April 26, 2023, the FDA recalled packed turkey and havarti sandwiches from multiple grocery chains due to undeclared sesame.

Kroger locations in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Texas, and Louisiana, Dillons Food locations in Kansas, Baker's in Nebraska, Gerbes Super Markets in Missouri, and Ralphs in California carried the sandwiches.

Sesame allergies may kill. Since January 1, 2023, the FDA has required food labels to state "contains wheat" or "contains tree nuts."

An internal audit found undeclared sesame in the turkey and havarti sandwiches, prompting a voluntary recall. No illnesses or allergies have been recorded.

The label didn't carry the allergy notice even though sesame was always in the bread used to create these sandwiches.

Clients with sesame allergies or sensitivity ought to throw away the recalled turkey and havarti sandwiches or return them to the store for a full refund without a receipt.

The recalled sandwiches were packed with 8.55-ounce plastic clamshells with the UPC 826766155842. Sandwiches with sell-by dates until April 29, 2023, were supplied to shops starting January 1, 2023.

The FDA now requires sesame to be identified as an allergy, but only for freshly packaged items, so consumers should check labels carefully.

Food allergies can be dangerous. Pre-law items with extensive shelf life may not reveal sesame.
