OTTAWA, Ontario – Montreal-based Charcuterie Parisienne launched a recall of cured meats due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) reported.
CFIA said the recall was triggered by test results. The agency is conducting a food safety investigation that may lead to the recall of other products. The agency is advising consumers to discard or return affected products to the store where they were purchased.
The items subject to the recall include:
- Le trio de charcuteries Champêtre (150g), best before Dec. 12 or 14
- Le trio de charcuteries Parisien (150g), best before Dec. 13 or 20
- Cooked white ham (approximately 350g), best before Dec. 5
- Rindless slab bacon (approximately 200g), best before Dec. 14
CFIA is verifying that the retailer is removing recalled product from the marketplace. There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products, the agency noted.
Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still cause illness. Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk.
