European Butcher brand bacon ‘chuncks’ recalled because of Listeria concerns

European Butcher is recalling European Butcher brand “Bacon Chuncks” from the marketplace because of possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. 

The recalled product was distributed in Ontario, CA.

This recall was triggered by test results. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. The CFIA is verifying that the industry is removing the recalled product from the marketplace.

There is concern that consumers may have unused portions of the recalled product in their homes because the expiration rates run through October. Consumers can use the following information to determine whether they have the recalled bacon in their homes.

Consumers should check to see if they have the recalled product in their home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

About Listeria infections

Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still cause serious and sometimes life-threatening infections. Anyone who has eaten any recalled products and developed symptoms of Listeria infection should seek medical treatment and tell their doctors about the possible Listeria exposure.

Also, anyone who has eaten any of the recalled products should monitor themselves for symptoms during the coming weeks because it can take up to 70 days after exposure to Listeria for symptoms of listeriosis to develop.

Symptoms of Listeria infection can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache, and neck stiffness. Specific laboratory tests are required to diagnose Listeria infections, which can mimic other illnesses.

Pregnant women, the elderly, young children, and people such as cancer patients who have weakened immune systems are particularly at risk of serious illnesses, life-threatening infections, and other complications. Although infected pregnant women may experience only mild, flu-like symptoms, their infections can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn, or even stillbirth.
