TORONTO - The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says a popular roast beef brand sold across the country is being recalled over possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
FG Deli Group Ltd. is recalling Grimm's Fine Foods brand Home Style Roast Beef and is advising Canadians not to eat the product over health concerns.
The recalled meat may have been sold without a label at deli counters in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Yukon, and could have been distributed in other provinces or territories.
Consumers should look for products with an expiration date of July 24 and the company says it should be thrown out or returned to the store where it was purchased.
The CFIA says food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still make people sick. Symptoms can be fatal in severe cases and 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.
