Nearly 4,000 sandwiches sold in multiple states have been recalled because they may contain sesame.

"Prepared turkey and cheese sandwiches included sesame that was not declared on the product label," the U.S. Food and Drug Administration wrote in a news release. "Potential cross contact occurred when chicken salad on a croissant and egg salad sandwiches were prepared on the same surface as the turkey sandwiches."

The sandwiches were distributed to convenience stores in Arizona, California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington.

"People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to sesame run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product," officials said.

No allergic reactions have been reported.

Consumers with the affected products should not eat them and dispose of them, or return them to the store of purchase for a refund.
