King Soopers said today it has recalled its chicken salad sandwiches that are sold in King Soopers and City Market stores, located in Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Wyoming. The product may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

No confirmed reports of illness or injury have been reported to date.  Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider.

The chicken salad sandwich is the prepackaged 6.8 oz item sold in the deli department at King Soopers.  King Soopers has removed this item from store shelves and initiated its customer recall notification system that alerts customers who may have purchased recalled products through register receipt tape messages and phone calls.
