OTTAWA – A recall of products made by Pinty’s Delicious Foods Inc. recently was updated to include chicken schnitzel that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) reported.
Pinty’s launched a recall of Italian Style Chicken Schnitzel on concerns of possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. CFIA said the agency’s test results triggered the recall. There have been no reported illnesses associated with the product, CFIA noted. On Aug. 10, the company recalled its Oven Roasted Chicken Breast Strips for the same reason.
The Italian Style Chicken Schnitzel – Gluten Free Fully Cooked, Breaded and Seasoned Cutlettes in 4 kg. packages were sold nationally in Canada. The products bear a UPC of 10069094626371 and code 8172.
CFIA urged consumers, distributors and foodservice establishments to discard the products or return them to the place of purchase. Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still cause illness. 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, CFIA said.
