What you should do

If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor.

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.


This recall was triggered by Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) test results. The CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. If other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings.

The CFIA is verifying that industry is removing recalled product from the marketplace.


There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of this product.


  1. Recalls, recalls, recalls. Why are all these recalls happening? Is there that much negligence or is CFIA just being more vigilant (as it should)?

  2. What we have noticed is that food is played with by those in the food industry GMO Foods (Genetically Modified Organisms) and there is a book out on this subject and some people are going organic which is very costly. Even homos that is already made is contaminated. I make our own homos.

  3. I remember a Lebanese lady that we know about would soak her fish, steak, etc. in vinegar to kill any bacteria before she would cook it and that is an excellent idea since vinegar disinfects and vinegar is an excellent fabric softener besides using it for cleaning and disinfecting.

  4. For those who are sensitive to vinegar as a fabric softener you can add in a few drops of scented oil which I do and it helps get rid of the smell of vinegar. I like vinegar to clean with and even our supers use that as well as dish soap to clean the windows and counters, etc.

  5. A lot of the food inspectors have been let go from the Harper government and we all have to be mighty careful about what we buy and the dates. A lot of the dates are changed and I have seen that a lot and a lot of stuff is old like where my daughter works and if you don’t look at dates, etc. then you get into big trouble.
