If you recently stocked your fridge with fresh salads and sandwiches from Meijer in hopes of grabbing an easy lunch, you might want to find other plans — unless you want a side of Salmonella. 

Meijer announced Tuesday that it would recall select fresh salads and sandwiches after determining they may be contaminated with Salmonella.

According to a notice posted with the Food and Drug Administration, the “Markets of Meijer Salads and Sandwiches” were sold in Meijer stores from July 20 to July 25 at Meijer stores across the country.

The salads and sandwiches contain a cooked egg ingredient sourced from Prime Foods, LLC, a Meijer supplier. Prime Foods LLC recently notified Meijer of a positive test for Salmonella in their product.

So far, Meijer says it is unaware of any illnesses reported related to the affected recall. Consumers who have purchased this product should discontinue use and return the product to the nearest Meijer store for a full refund.

The following products are covered by the recall:
