CHICAGO -- A vending operation here has agreed to stop producing and distributing its sandwiches and produce after Food and Drug Administration investigators said they repeatedly found unsanitary conditions and bacterial contamination in the facility.

Triple A Services, a full-line vending and mobile catering company, entered the agreement under a consent decree filed in the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of Illinois.

The terms of the decree would also require Triple A to hire an expert to help establish an effective sanitation program, to comply with FDA regulations and to eliminate Listeria monocytogenes contamination from company facilities.

No illnesses have been reported to date from Triple A Services' products.
