Sesame Allergy Alert: Capitol Distributing

Capitol Distributing Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Sesame in Product

Capitol Distributing is recalling 3,934 sandwiches because they may contain undeclared sesame. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to sesame run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

Prepared turkey and cheese sandwiches included sesame that was not declared on the product label. Potential cross contact occurred when chicken salad on a croissant and egg salad sandwiches were prepared on the same surface as the turkey sandwiches. The products were distributed in Arizona, California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington. Customers could have encountered these options within convenience store coolers as early as February 8. The sandwiches are made fresh and delivered with refrigerated transport. Shelf life is approximately 9 days.

Convenience stores potentially affected include the following:

  • Buds Marketplace (Eagle, ID)
  • Wild Willy's (Emmett, ID)
  • Valley Wide Stores (Idaho)
  • Ranch Market (Boise, ID)
  • EZ Mart (New Plymouth, ID)
