A recent recall of pre-cooked roast beef due to possible contamination from Listeria is being expanded.
The March 28 recall announced by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency concerned Seasoned Cooked Roast Beef sold at Druxy’s Famous Deli outlets in Ontario.
The agency now says the roast beef produced by Erie Meat Products Ltd., of Mississauga, Ont., has been sold elsewhere in Ontario in addition to Alberta, Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador, and may have also been sold in other provinces or territories.
The CFIA says the product may have been portioned and sold without a label, coding or under a different brand. The beef carries best-before dates of April 10 and April 17.
Consumers and establishments such as hotels, restaurants and hospitals are advised to throw out the meat or return it to the location where purchased.
The CFIA says there have been reported illnesses linked to a similar product, but there have been no confirmed illnesses tied to this specific item.
Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness.
