RECALL: Starbucks recalling breakfast sandwiches after listeria discovered
Sausage egg and cheese sandwiches at Starbucks have been pulled from 250 stores.
The sandwiches may have been contaminated last week with Listeria.
"As soon as Starbucks was informed of the potential issue, the impacted product was removed from the 250 stores that potentially received it," the food manufacturer said.
Food manufacturer Progressive Gourmet of Wilmington, Mass., said it recalled the sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwiches from 250 stores.
Starbucks spokeswoman Sanja Gould said, "We have not received any reports of illnesses to date.”
The monocytogenes species of bacteria was discovered on a surface at its production facility during routing testing.
