According to a news release, “consumers who are unsure if they have consumed or purchased the affected product are advised to contact the restaurant.”
The city of Toronto reportedly receives an average of 17 reports annual of Listeria infection – described as “a serious but rare illness caused by eating food contaminated with the bacteria Listeria Monocytogenes. Common foods contaminated with this bacteria include deli meats and unpasteurized dairy products. People most at risk of developing serious illness are those with weakened immune systems, the elderly, and pregnant women.”
Symptoms of listeriosis can appear from three to 70 days according to Public Health Ontario. Common symptoms can include muscle aches, fever, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting.
The CFIA also advises to call your docotor if you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product.
