(Before It's News)

Charcuterie Parisienne Inc. of Montreal, Quebec, is recalling four cured meat products due to potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

According to the recall notice posted by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, the products were only available via retail in Quebec.

There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products, CFIA stated, adding that food safety officials are verifying that industry is removing the recalled product from the marketplace.

The recall was triggered by CFIA test results. The agency noted that it is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products.

Consumers should not consume the recalled products described below:

Brand Name Common Name Size Code(s) on Product UPC
Charcuterie Parisienne Le trio de charcuteries Champêtre 150 g Best before 16 DE12 and
16 DE 14

Charcuterie Parisienne Rindless Slab Bacon Variable (approximately 200 g) Best before 16 DE14 None

Anyone who has these recalled products in their home should throw them out or return them to the store where they were purchased. Anyone who believes they became sick from consuming a recalled product is advised to call a doctor.

For more information, contact Jean-Yves N’Diaye, director of quality assurance and research and development for Charcuterie Parisienne Inc., at 514-274-9375, ext. 206, or via email at jyndiaye@charcuterie.ca.

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.

Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk. Although infected pregnant women may experience only mild, flu-like symptoms, the infection can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn or even stillbirth. In severe cases of illness, people may die.
