GK Hart/Vikki Hart/Getty Images(CHICAGO) — Chicago-based Triple A Services Inc. has agreed to stop making its ready-to-eat sandwiches and produce after unsanitary conditions were discovered at its facility, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced Thursday.

The FDA says its investigators have repeatedly found unsanitary conditions and bacterial contamination, and that the company has agreed to stop making and distributing its products as part of a consent decree filed in a Northern Illinois district court. The company is also required to hire a sanitation expert to establish an effective sanitation program.

There have not been any reports of illness as a result, the FDA said.
