Capitol Distributing Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Sesame in Product

Capitol Distributing is recalling 3,934 sandwiches because they may contain undeclared sesame. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to sesame run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

Prepared turkey and cheese sandwiches included sesame that was not declared on the product label. Potential cross contact occurred when chicken salad on a croissant and egg salad sandwiches were prepared on the same surface as the turkey sandwiches. The products were distributed in Arizona, California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington. Customers could have encountered these options within convenience store coolers as early as February 8. The sandwiches are made fresh and delivered with refrigerated transport. Shelf life is approximately 9 days.

Convenience stores potentially affected include the following:

No reactions or customer complaints have been recorded to date.

A new bread source for sandwiches included sesame and the allergen was incorrectly left off of updated sandwich labels. The labels have been updated and any future possibility of cross contact has been eliminated.

This recall is being made with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Customers with a sesame allergy or sensitivity who have purchased the affected product are urged not to consume the product and dispose of it or return it to their place of purchase for a full refund.
