380,000 Pounds Of Canadian Bacon Recalled Due To Possible Listeria Contamination
WASHINGTON (AP) – A Canadian company is recalling about 380,000 pounds of Canadian bacon that may be contaminated with listeria.
No illnesses have been reported. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention classifies listeriosis as a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, pregnant women, newborns and adults with weakened immune systems.
The U.S. Agriculture Department says the recalled products have production dates before Aug. 10, and the containers have “EST No. 169A” and “Product of Canada.” It was sold under the names Napoli, Stefano, Bellissimo, Olymel or Assoluti cooked diced bacon.
People with questions can call the manufacturer, Aliments Prince S.E.C., at 1-800-361-5800.
