Some Processed Meats Recalled in Canada

OTTAWA, May 10 (UPI) — The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warming against consuming various brands of processed products made by Zadi Foods Ltd. due to possible contamination.

The CFIA said the meat and cheese products might be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections.

Some products would have been sold at deli counters, but officials said the original brand and/or best-before dates might not have been transferred at the deli counters to consumer packages. People who might have purchased the recalled products and don’t know the original brand are advised to check with their retailer to determine if they have an affected product.

The recalled products — distributed nationally — include Casa Italia, Italfoods, Longo’s, Italissima, Golosini and Vitorio boneless and bulk prosciutto; Genoa salami; Soppressata shaved bulk salami; Casa Italia Genoa light salami; Compliments Milanese salami; and Emma Provolone cheese.

Consumers with questions can contact the Brampton, Ontario, company at 905-799-6666, extension 5234.
