The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has issued an updated notice on not consuming a particular brand of marinated salmon and a recall notice on a Spanish cheese for possible Listeria contamination.
The CFIA is asking that consumers not eat either of the products and if they have them in their homes, to either throw them away or return them to the place of purchase for a refund, according to Food Safety News.
Fjord Laks Gravlax- Marinated Salmon
On January 30, 2016, the CFIA issued a Class 1 recall notice for A&E Distribution Inc., recalling Fjord Laks brand Gravlax marinated salmon from the marketplace due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
This recall was triggered by the CFIA based on test results done by the agency. The recall notice was for the Gravlax marinated salmon with dill sauce included. The product had a Best By date of up to February 14, 2016.
On April 6, the CFIA issued a second notice, warning people not to consume the product because of ongoing problems with Listeria. The product under this extended warning is the Gravlax – Marinated Salmon (Dill sauce included). The 165-gram container has a Best By date up to and including April 20, 2016.
CFIA also says they are conducting an investigation which may lead to the recall of these or other products. If products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through a Food Recall Warning.
Vegajardin brand Murcia al Vino cheese recall
On April 6, 2016, the CFIA issued a Class 1 recall of Vegajardin brand Murcia al Vino Cheese from the marketplace also due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
Retailers in British Columbia received the cheese from A. Bosa & Co. Ltd., according to the recall notice on the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s website. This cheese has a very long shelf life and consumers should check to see if they have the product and if they do, they need to throw it away or return it to where it was purchased for a refund.
Murcia al Vino cheese is a Spanish cheese that has “protected designation of origin status.” It is traditionally made from unpasteurized goat’s milk. The recall was triggered by CFIA testing that found possible Listeria contamination present.
The product under this recall is Vegajardin brand Murcia al Vino cheese in 250-gram chunks with a batch number of 2572. The UPC number of 8 431043 120349 and a best-by date of Feb. 28, 2017.
