Statement on voluntary recall of sandwich meat used in select Marketside Grab and Go deli sandwiches

The safety of customers is a top priority at Walmart, and that includes offering safe, high quality foods at the most affordable prices. Upon learning of a voluntary recall conducted by our supplier Zemco Industries, Inc., of supermarket deli sandwich meat used in select Marketside Grab and Go deli sandwiches, we took action. We immediately instructed stores to remove the impacted product from shelves.

The recall does not involve individual retail packages of deli meat but does impact Marketside Grab and Go sandwiches including the Ham and Swiss Sandwich, Italian Hero Sandwich, Roast Beef and Cheddar Sandwich, and Smokehouse Hero Sandwich. Each of these half and whole sandwiches have a sell by date of August 25, 2010 or before.

We encourage customers who recently purchased this item to return it for a full refund.
