MAPLE LEAF Products Recalled

25 Aug
In one of the most massive recalls ever in Canada Maple Leaf has been plunged into a nightmare and I am sure will cost this company dearly for the harm  including deaths it has caused many of its customers.

It’s a wake up call for those of us who depend on ready cooked meals. This could happen to any product that is prepared in bulk for us. 

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may cause listeriosis, a foodborne illness. Elderly, the very young, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk.
    This outbreak apparently started in June but the effects are now felt as more and more people are becoming ill with similar symptoms.
 The Company has initiated a voluntary recall of the under-mentioned products, and as a precautionary measure expanded the recall to include all products produced on the two manufacturing lines involved from June 2nd (the earliest affected production date) to present. The Company is also temporarily closing the plant in order to fully reassess all aspects of its food safety procedures at this facility, including supplementary sanitation of equipment and validation of our testing protocols.
Sure Slice Roast Beef and Sure Slice Corned Beef products were involved in a recall announced on Sunday, August 17. Additional products now being recalled include the following, and were largely distributed to foodservice institutions such as restaurants, hospitals and nursing homes and may also be sold at deli counters supplied by foodservice distributors. The retail products affected were distributed nationally.
The products being recalled all carry Establishment No. 97B and have a best before date up to and including those identified in the table below.
