The recalled items are a variety of ham salad and sandwich products made at chain stores, including branches of Loblaws, IGA and Metro. Independent retailers and deli stores across Quebec are also affected.
The CFIA advises consumers who have purchased those products between Feb. 11 and Feb. 20 to check at the point of purchase whether they have consumed an affected item. Consumers who have bought the products but still haven’t consumed them are advised to refrain from doing so.
There have been no reported illnesses from the consumption of these products due to the bacteria.
The CFIA says manufacturer Plaisirs Gastronomiques Inc. of Boisbriand, Que., has told all retailers who may have used the ham salad to make sandwiches or other products to remove the products in question voluntarily.
