The recall of deli meat products for possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination sold at Tre Rose Bakery in Ontario, Canada has been expanded to include all deli meats sold before and including October 4, 2016. The original recall was issued on September 28, 2016 and was updated on October 4, 2016.
These new products were identified during the CFIA’s food safety investigation. The products were sliced and sold at Tre Rose Bakery at 2098 Kipling Avenue in Toronto, Ontario from September 30 to October 4, 2016. They may have also been incorporated into sandwiches and other products made in-store by the retailer.
There has been one illness reported in association with the consumption of these products. There may be more, since the illness caused by this bacteria can take up to 70 days to appear.
The store is now recalling ALL deli meat products that were sliced and sold at that location, up to and including October 4, 2016. If you purchased any deli meats from Tre Rose Bakery in Toronto, Ontario, throw them away.
If you bought any of these recalled products, or foods made with those products, do not eat them. Throw them away in a sealed container, or take them back to the store for a refund. Wash your hands well with soap and water after handling these products.
Then clean out your refrigerator with a solution of one tablespoon liquid chlorine bleach to one gallon of warm water to kill any bacteria. Listeria monocytogenes bacteria is very hardy and can grow at refrigerator temperatures. Freezing does not kill this bacteria.
If you ate any of these recalled products, watch yourself for the symptoms of Listeria food poisoning. Those symptoms include high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, nausea, vomiting, and muscle aches. Some people may only have mild flu like symptoms. Pregnant women can suffer miscarriage or stillbirth if they contract listeriosis, even if they are only mildly ill. If you do get sick, see a doctor and tell her you ate these recalled products.
