article imageCanada: Nationwide recall of Sobey's broccoli slaw over listeria

By Karen Graham     Nov 30, 2016 in Food
Sobey's Inc. is recalling its Compliments brand Broccoli Slaw due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. The recall covers all provinces, with the exception of Quebec.
Food Safety News is reporting that at this time, there have been no reports of illnesses associated with the recall or the testing that brought it about.
The recalled product was distributed in all Canadian provinces, including New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, with the exception of Quebec, according to CTV News.
The recall was triggered by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency's (CFIA) test results. The CFIA issued a Class 1 recall notice and is conducting a further investigation into the contamination. CFIA says this could lead to further recalls of other products. The public will be informed of any further developments.
The recalled Compliments brand Broccoli Slaw was sold in a 340-gram bag with a best before date of Nov. 25, 2016. The UPC code is 0 68820 10422 3.
The CFIA is also verifying that all the recalled product is pulled from the marketplace. Consumers are told that the recalled product should be thrown out or returned to the store where it was purchased. Do not consume the product.
Remember that food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell bad but it 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 can be at increased risk of illness.
