Pierre PB Jamwich Recall Issued For Crustless Sandwiches
Potential listeria contamination has led to a recall of Pierre pb jamwich products, a crustless peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwich sold at Giant stores in four states.
The peanut butter and jelly jamwich recall was announced on March 11 by the FDA and Pierre Foods after Listeria monocytogenes was detected in one product sample. There have been no reports of Listeria food poisoning in connection to the pre-made, crustless peanut butter and jelly circle sandwiches.
The manufacturer recalled 320 cases of “pb jamwich” sandwiches, sold in 12-count red cartons in the freezer section of Giant grocery stores in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia. The affected packages have a UPC code of 7599921368 and have “Best if purchased by 03-11-2011” stamped in the lower right hand corner.

Listeria infections, also known as listeriosis, pose a particular risk for children, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems. For pregnant women, illness from Listeria bacteria can cause miscarriages and still births. The fatality rate associated with listeriosis is about 25%.
Blood tests are usually required to diagnose listeriosis, which can be treated with antibiotics. Symptoms of listeriosis include muscle aches, abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, severe headaches and fever. If the bacteria spreads from the intestines to the bloodstream and nervous system, it could cause meningitis and other complications.
Any consumers who purchased product affected by the Pierre peanut butter and jelly sandwich recall can return the carton to the place of purchase for a full refund. Any consumers with questions can contact Pierre Foods at 1-800-982-7091.
