Listeria Concern Prompts Pre-cut Veggie Recall In Canada

Pre-cut vegetables sold as “Freshly Cut Grillers” by Pure Hothouse Foods are being recalled due to possible Listeria contamination, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

The Pure Flavor brand of  Freshly Cut Grillers under recall were distributed in Ontario and sold in 14 oz / 400 g trays with “Use By” dates of August 11, 2012 through August 26, 2012. The UPC codes for each variety are as follows: Premium Medley, 6 84924 06001 4; Asparagus Blend, 6 84924 06012 0; Rustic Blend, 6 84924 06003 8 and Steak Topper 6 84924 06002 1.

No illnesses have been associated with the consumption of these products. CFIA is monitoring the voluntary recall by Pure Hothouse.

Food that is contaminated with Listeria may not look or smell bad and Listeria can thrive in cold temperatures. Foods most commonly associated with Listeria are cold cuts, hot dogs, raw milk or cheeses made from raw milk; refrigerated pâtés and meat spreads and refrigerated smoked seafood

Foods contaminated with Listeria can cause a serious infection called listeriosis. Symptoms include fever, severe headache, stiff neck and nausea which usually develop three weeks after exposure but can take as long as 70 days to appear.

Pregnant women, older people, young children and those with compromised immune systems are most at risk. Infections during pregnancy can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn, miscarriage and stillbirth.
