TORONTO – A food recall warning issued on December 15 has been updated to include additional products after a Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) investigation into possible contamination with Listeria bacteria.
The recall includes 14 deli products from the Assala, Compliments, The Deli-Shop and Levitts brands.

The federal regulator is asking Canadians to check the recalled products in their homes. All affected products should be discarded or returned to the store where they were purchased.

While the CFIA says there have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of the recently recalled products, there has been one reported illness that may have originated from products in a previous recall on the 7th. December.

The regulator notes that food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell bad, but can still make you sick. Symptoms may include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle pain, severe headache, and stiff neck.

Pregnant people, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems may be particularly at risk.

The CFIA recommends that anyone who thinks they may be ill after consuming any of these products contact their physician.
