Consumers should avoid Saroli brand Green Bella di Cerignola olives because of a botulism threat, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) says.
Mario Saroli Sales Inc. is voluntarily recalling the product from the market. The recall involves one-litre containers with the UPC 7 79390 00404 1 and the lot code 075/6, which may be tainted with Clostridium botulinum, the bacteria that causes botulism.
The product was distributed in Ontario.
Food contaminated with Clostridium botulinum toxin may not look or smell spoiled. Consumption of food contaminated with the toxin may cause nausea, vomiting, fatigue, dizziness, headache, double vision, dry throat, respiratory failure and paralysis. Severe cases may cause death.
For more information, consumers can call the CFIA at 1-800-442-2342.
