Production resumes at Schwebel factory

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The smell of fresh bread will be in the air on Youngstown’s south side Thursday, as a Schwebel’s factory there is back up and running after a Listeria scare.

WKBN First News has learned that lines were rolling before 5 a.m. Thursday, and some delivery trucks are already on their way to start re-stocking local store shelves. Schwebel’s products are scheduled to be back in stores as normal by Friday morning.

Schwebel’s still wants people to return bread products that have a code starting with the letter “A.” The code can be found above the “best buy” date on the package.

Schwebel’s announced the finding of listeria at the Youngstown factory Tuesday, and proceeded to pull products off store shelves and ask customers to return items the company believed to be affected.

Wednesday, the company announced that the type of listeria found at the factory was not dangerous to human health.
