Convenience stores around the area will be pulling more ready made sandwiches off their shelves after the Canadian Food Inspection Agency expanded a recall announced just over a week ago.
 
The agency has ordered the recall of 36 varieties sold across the country under the brand names Best Value, Fresh and Local, Hygaard, Made To Go, Quality Fast Foods, Quality Fast Foods Classics and The Snack Co. because of possible Listeria contamination.
 
Food contaminated with Listeria may not look or smell spoiled but can cause symptoms that include vomiting, nausea, pain and fever.  Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk.
 
The CFIA says the recall was triggered by its inspections and that its investigation may lead to additional recalls.
 
A full list of the recalled sandwiches is posted on the CFIA website.
