Canadian Firm Recalls Stir-Fry Vegetables for Listeria

Canadian firm Sobeys, Inc., is recalling Compliments brand Stir-Fry Style Vegetables sold in Ontario from the marketplace due to possible Listeria contamination.

Consumers should not consume 12-oz. Stir-Fry Style Vegetables with a Best Before 14 JA 21 date and a UPC of 0 68820 10648 7, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, which issued the notice on Sunday.

Check to see if you have recalled product in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased. There have been no reported illnesses associated with consumption of this product.

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.

This recall was triggered by Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) test results. CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. If other high-risk products are recalled, CFIA will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings.
