Sandwich Maker Shuts Down Production Due To Health Risks

Posted on December 27, 2011

According to news sources, the Food and Drug Administration has announced that a Chicago based ready-to-eat sandwich maker has shut down manufacturing after a repeated history of violations and a reported Listeria outbreak.

The company, Triple A Services Inc., has announced the closure of of the manufacturing facility after agreeing to stop producing and distributing its ready-to-eat sandwiches. The agreement also stipulates that the company hire a sanitation expert to oversee the company’s sanitation program and ensure its compliance with existing FDA safety regulations.

There have been no illnesses to date relating to the consumption of the company’s sandwich products.

The company’s manufacturing facility reportedly experienced a Listeria monocytogenes outbreak recently, helping prompt the decision to close the facility. Listeria can cause severe or even fatal infections to those with weak immune systems, the elderly and children.
