European Butcher brand Bacon "Chunks" recalled over possible Listeria contamination

OTTAWA — A recall has been issued by European Butcher for its European Butcher brand Bacon "Chunks" due to a possible Listeria contamination.

The product was sold in Ontario in packages of approximately 200g, with best before dates of Oct. 15, 2021 and Oct. 22, 2021.

There have been no reports of any illnesses linked to the product.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the recall was triggered by test results.

The agency is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. 

Food contaminated with Listeria 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.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 7, 2021.
