Concord Premium Meats Ltd. is recalling Marc Angelo brand Genoa Salami from the marketplace due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) .
This recall was triggered by CFIA test results.
The affected product comes in 100 g size with a “Best Before” date of 1 Dec 14 and a 6 27907 05735 9 UPC code.
The CFIA is advising people who have the recalled product in their home to throw it out or return to the store where they were purchased.
Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness.
Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk. Although infected pregnant women may experience only mild, flu-like symptoms, the infection can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn or even stillbirth. In severe cases of illness, people may die.
