Lee’s Sandwiches meat recall doubles
A firm with Bay Area ties has now doubled the amount of meat products it is recalling from restaurants in California and other states, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Garden Grove-based LQNN, Inc., which operates as Lee’s Sandwiches in the Bay Area, is now recalling more than 440,000 pounds of chicken, beef and pork products that were produced before May 26, according to the USDA.
USDA officials said the added products should have been included in the first recall, which started May 20 and was limited to about 213,000 pounds of meat products.
In a statement, Lee’s Sandwiches said the recalled food went to Lee’s locations in California, Arizona, Oregon, Nevada Oklahoma and Texas.
However, none of the 15 Lee’s locations in Northern California were affected.
Neither the USDA nor the firm has received any reports of adverse reactions to the recalled products, USDA officials said. People who may be having an adverse reaction should see a health care provider.
The recall is voluntary, according to the company, and comes after a USDA investigation into its inspection and labeling practices.
Lee’s Sandwiches sells a wide variety of sandwiches, specializing in Vietnamese cuisine.
