OTTAWA, Aug. 20 (UPI) -- The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning against consuming certain brands of ready-to-eat deli meat products because of possible contamination.
The CFIA said the meat products possibly contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, all bearing the establishment number 97b, were distributed across Canada -- primarily to restaurants, hospitals and nursing homes. However, the federal agency said the products might also be sold at retail stores and deli counters.
The manufacturer, Maple Leaf Consumer Foods of Burlington, Ontario, is voluntarily recalling the affected products.
A listing of the possibly contaminated brands and meat products is available at http://www.inspection.gc.ca/english/corpaffr/recarapp/2008/20080819e.shtml.
Consumers with questions can contact the company at 800-568-5801 or the CFIA at 800-442-2342.
