Another Listeria contamination fear has caused a recall of Compliments brand Sensations Old-Style Smoked Ham, according to recent news sources.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Les Cuisines Gaspesiennes de Matane Ltee are conducting the recall voluntarily. No illnesses have been reported in association with the product.
The products affected are sold in 175 g packages with the UPC 6 23682 10628 2, Lot Code: 230 87, and Best Before: 2011NO13. They were sold in Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador.
Listeria monocytogenes is a bacteria that can cause a life-threatening infection. Those who are elderly, pregnant, very young, or with weakened immune systems are at a higher risk.
As a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer, consumer health is something that I am very conscious of and I know that even with tough rules and regulations on manufacturers mistakes can still be made. I encourage anyone who is experiencing the symptoms of Listeriosis to seek immediate medical attention. The product liability lawyer at our law firm sincerely hope that no one has been sickened by consuming the recalled ham.
