Recall issued on spaghetti sauce made in Quebec which may contain dangerous bacteria


MONTREAL – A spaghetti sauce sold in Quebec has been recalled by food safety officials because it may contain dangerous bacteria. The sauce, sold by Erabliere Godbout, may allow the growth of Clostridium botulinum or foodborne botulism, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency recalled.

The sauce cans were sold until September 27 in 500 milliliter and 1 liter jars and did not bear the required “keep refrigerated” label. Recalled products must be discarded or returned to the store where they were purchased.

No illnesses associated with the consumption of these products have been reported, but the measure is being implemented as a precaution.

Food contaminated with toxins may not look or smell altered, but can still make you sick. Symptoms in adults may include facial paralysis, unresponsive or fixed pupils, difficulty swallowing, blurred or double vision, slurred speech, and hoarseness of the voice.

Symptoms of foodborne botulism in children can include difficulty swallowing, slurred speech, general weakness, and paralysis.

In severe cases of illness, people can die.

If you think you have become ill after consuming any recalled product, call your doctor.
