The recall now covers dozens of affected products and all sandwiches with a Best By date of 2/6/20 and before.

The sandwiches were distributed to food service and retail stores in Alabama, Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Listeria can cause different symptoms, depending on the person and the part of the body affected, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Pregnant typically experience only fever and other flu-like symptoms, such as fatigue and muscle aches. However, infections during pregnancy can lead to miscarriage, stillbirth, premature delivery, or life-threatening infection of the newborn.

For people other than pregnant women, the CDC says symptoms can include headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, and convulsions in addition to fever and muscle aches.
