The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is recalling the Deli Classic brand of sliced roast beef due to possible Listeria contamination.
The recalled product was sold in Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, Newfoundland and Labrador, and could have been distributed to other provinces and territories.
The recall applies to the following product:
|Brand Name||Common Name||Size||Code(s) on Product||UPC|
|Deli Classic||Seasoned Cooked Roast Beef Round||Variable||Best Before
“This product may have been portioned and sold without a label, coding or under a different brand. Consumers who are unsure if they have purchased the affected product are advised to contact their retailer,” said the CFIA.
Consumers should throw away the product or return to the store where 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.
The CFIA says that there have been reported illnesses associated with a similar product. However, there have been no confirmed illnesses associated with the product in this recall.
