Listeria Scare Leads to Deli Salad/Sandwich Recall

Testing at the company's facility identified multiple contaminated packages.

Egg Salad

Elevation Foods is voluntarily recalling containers of Archer Farms-brand egg salad; Freskëtbrand egg salad, tuna salad, and Thai lobster salad, as well as Archer Farms-brand deviled egg sandwiches produced on June 18, 2019 due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. The product was shipped to retailer warehouses throughout the United States. No illnesses have been reported to date.

The recalled products were manufactured at the company's facility in Knoxville, Tennessee. Elevation Foods is working with distributors and retailers to quarantine and recover any impacted product remaining on store shelves.

The problem was identified after testing by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services found three containers to be contaminated. Elevation Foods is continuing to investigate potential sources of the problem.
