Illinois-based Hearthside Food Solutions LLC has issued a voluntary recall of 7-Eleven Inc.-branded sandwiches due to the presence of eggs, a known allergen, that was not declared on the product label.
According to a May 22 notice from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the recall involves a total of 1,038 "The Italian Job" sandwiches distributed to 362 7-Eleven branches in Indiana, Wisconsin and Illinois. They bear the sell-by date of May 23 and UPC code 5254859970.
The recall was prompted after a sandwich that was not scannable at a store was found to have used an obsolete "Italian Style Sub" label that did not declare reduced-fat mayonnaise, an ingredient that contains egg, the agency said.
The FDA said no reports of illnesses have been reported in connection to the products, but the sandwiches have already been removed from 7-Eleven shelves.
The agency is urging customers to immediately dispose of the recalled product or return them for a full refund.
