"Dunn" In By Listeria monocytogenes

Les Salaisons Desco Inc. (Boisbriand, QC) has recalled two batches of Dunn’s Famous brand Smoked Meat, which may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The 1 Kg packages (6 x 175g pouches/package), bearing UPC 4 00007 55699 7 and Best Before dates of 2008 NO 01 and 2008 NO 02, were sold only in Costco stores in the city of Ottawa and the provinces of Québec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador. The outer cardboard box also identifies the production facility as EST 501.

Costco stores elsewhere in Ontario and in the western provinces do not carry the recalled items. Dunn's Famous brand Smoked Meat bearing the same UPC and Best Before dates may also be available in the rest of Canada, but are not part of this recall.

While there have been no reported illnesses, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning the public not to consume the two potentially contaminated batches of smoked meat. Consumers who purchased the recalled meat should either discard it or return it to Costco for a refund.
