Norovirus Outbreak in Canada Leads to Recall of Raspberry Cakes

A norovirus outbreak in Canada has led to the recall of raspberry mousse cakes in that country. The product was sold in Quebec, Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Possibly National, and Saskatchewan.

The recalled products were sold under several brand names. They were sold frozen or refrigerated or clerk-served from bakery-pastry counters with or without a label or coding. If you aren’t sure if you purchased one of these recalled products, check with your retailer.

The recalled products include Michaud Citrus-raspberry Greek yogurt mousse in 650 gram packages. The codes on that product are 1667, 1777, 1997, 2017, and 2077; and the UPC number isĀ 0 620737 001806.

The following products have variable UPC numbers: Jessica Chocolate Raspberry Mousse Cake in 650 gram packages, with all products sold up to and including August 11, 2017 recalled; generic Raspberry Mousse in 35 gram packages with code 17193; generic Raspberry Dream Cake in 1070 gram packages with code 17192; and generic Chocolate Raspberry Mousse Cake in 650 gram packages with code 17185. Also recalled is Laura Secord Red Berry Chocolate Mousse Cake in 90 gram, 85 gram, and 485 gram packages with code 17201; and Top Dessert Mousse sampler cake in 725 gram packages with codes 17170 and 17185. You can see images of the recalled products at the CFIA web site.

The symptoms of norovirus begin suddenly within one to two days of exposure. Symptoms include diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, low grade fever, headache, chills, muscle aches, and fatigue. Most people recover without medical treatment, but some can develop dehydration and need hospitalization.

If you purchased these products, do not eat them. Throw them away in a sealed container, or take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund. Restaurants, hotels, and institutions should not sell or serve these recalled products.
