“Carleton Mushroom is recalling Sliced White Mushrooms prepared for Metro Brands from the marketplace due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. Consumers should not consume the recalled product, the CFIA said in its “food recall warning” issued late Monday (Oct. 25).
Metro spokesperson Stephanie Bonk said the product has been removed from Food Basics shelves and is not sold at Metro.
“If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor,” the CFIA said. “Check to see if you have the recalled product in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.”
Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick, according to Health Canada.”
So there you go folks, take a look in your fridge, check out your mushrooms and make sure to follow the directions of the CFIA when it comes to food safety!
Take care, and I’ll see you soon!
