The belief is that these sandwiches may contain deli meats which came from Maple Leaf Foods Inc.

These deli meats could have been included in the recall by the company, who has been linked to the listeria outbreak.

28 different products from Safeway brand Gold Standard sandwiches, and TakeAwayCafe brand Mac’s sandwiches are included in the recall.

Listeria can lead to the diagnosis of listeriosis, a foodborne illness. Thus far, 15 deaths have already been reported in Canada.
