CHICAGO, Ill.--Fresh off a listeria outbreak in cantaloupes comes a new incident involving pre-packaged sandwiches.

St. Louis-based company Landshire, Inc. is recalling its Nike All-American and Nike Super Poor Boy sandwiches due to a possible listeria contamination.

The Illinois Department of Public Health discovered listeria in several samples taken from the company's production plant in Caseyville, Illinois.

The sandwiches, individually wrapped salami, bologna, ham, and mild Swiss cheese on a sesame seed sub roll, were manufactured between August 25 and October 6.

No illnesses connected to the sandwiches have been reported to date.

However, the company says they are taking precautions and are taking the items off the shelves. Refunds are available to those who have purchased the contaminated product.

The packaged sandwiches were sold at various convenience stores, wholesale food distributors, and grocery stores throughout Illinois.

Consumers with questions should contact Landshire at 314-925-4009.
