Listeria concerns prompt recall of packaged vegetable products


The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) on Wednesday reiterated Agropur Import Collection brand ripened firm cheese because it may have been contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The recalled product is the 200 g package containing the code: Best Before 17 DE! 5 and UPC 0 67400 00397 0.

“The affected products […] should not be consumed,” the CFIA warned in a statement. “If you think you have been sick after taking a recalled product, contact your doctor. Check if you have the recalled products at home. If so, throw them away or take them back to the store where they were purchased. ”

The CFIA has stated that “foods contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes do not necessarily have visible spoilage or a suspicious odor, but can still make you sick.”

Possible symptoms in people who have consumed contaminated food include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache, and stiff neck.

Karen and her husband live on a plot of land in British Columbia. They aim to grow and raise a significant part of their food by maintaining a vegetable garden, keeping a flock of backyard chickens and foraging. They are also currently planning a move to a small cabin they hand built. Karen’s academic background in nutrition made her care deeply about real food and seek ways to obtain it. Thus sprung Anna’s interest in backyard gardening, chicken and goat keeping, recycling and self-sufficiency.
