GOLDSBORO, N.C. (AP/WCSC) - A company whose products are sold in South Carolina is voluntarily recalling several food products because they might be contaminated with an organism that can cause infections in some people, including young children.
Sunburst Foods is voluntarily recalling all of its Sunburst, Fresh Bites and Private labeled products because they might be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The organism can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.
The company distributes pre-made sandwiches and other items which are then sold in retailers and convenience stores.
Company officials said they're unaware of any illnesses related to these products, which were sold in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Georgia.
The Private label products are identified by the following brand names: River Edge Farms, CFW, Southern Zest, CJ's Vending, Binford Street Deli, Middle Georgia Vendors, Roanoke Foods, Select Foods, and Jesse Jones (Double Chili Dogs).
