Québec Recalls Old Fashioned Smoked Meat

The Quebec Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPAQ) is advising consumers not to eat Mr. Smoked Meat brand Old Fashioned Smoked Meat, due to the possibility of contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

The contaminated meat, produced by Monsieur Smoked Meat Inc., 1053A rue Bernard Ouest, Outremont, QC, was sold in various retail stores in the province of Québec. The sliced smoked meat is distributed in 225g packages bearing an expiration date of 12 novembre 2008.

This has been a rough week for Old Fashioned Smoked Meat aficionados. Just two days ago, Les Salaisons Desco announced a second recall of Dunn's Famous brand Smoked Meat, sold in Costco stores in certain British Columbia locations.

Consumers are asked to return the recalled smoked meat packages to the store for a refund. For additional information, please call the Centre québécois d'inspection des aliments et de santé animale, toll free, at 1-800-463-5023.
