The following products were sold from Lady York Foods, 2939 Dufferin St., North York, Ontario.
This recall applies to all Mortadella products sliced and sold from the deli counter at Lady York Foods from December 2, 2014 to February 24, 2015. Consumers who are unsure if they have purchased an affected product are advised to contact the retailer.

Check to see if you have recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

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.
