Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness. Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk. Although infected pregnant women may experience only mild, flu-like symptoms, the infection can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn or even stillbirth. In severe cases of illness, people may die.
This recall was triggered by findings of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), Toronto Public Health, Public Health Ontario and other public health and food safety partners as part of an ongoing food borne illness outbreak investigation in Ontario. TheCFIA continues to conduct a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products.
There have been no confirmed illnesses associated with the consumption of these products sold on February 11, 2015. The recalled products are undergoing analysis to determine if they are linked to any illnesses.
