Advisory details

Ottawa, August 24, 2012 - The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and Odra Deli and Wholesale Meat Ltd. are warning the public not to consume Krakowska Sausage described below because the product may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The affected product, Krakowska Sausage, was sliced and sold to customers in variable weight packages from the deli counter at the Odra Deli and Wholesale Meat Ltd. in Mississauga, ON during August 9 to 20, 2012, inclusive.

There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of this product.

Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled. Consumption of food contaminated with these bacteria may cause listeriosis, a foodborne illness. Listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk. Infected pregnant women may experience only a mild, flu-like illness, however, infections during pregnancy can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn, or even stillbirth.

The manufacturer, Odra Deli and Wholesale Meat Ltd., Mississauga, ON is voluntarily recalling the affected product from the marketplace. The CFIA is monitoring the effectiveness of the recall.
