The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has issued a recall for Druxy’s Fresh Deli Revolution brand Seasoned Cooked Roast Beef due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

Indentified during a food safety investigation, the affected deli meat from Erie Meat Products Ltd., “has been portioned and served… without a label or coding,” at the following restauraunts and locations in Ontario:

  • Deco’s Deli & Lounge, 77 James Street North, Unit 254, Hamilton

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.
