The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning the public in the province of Québec that Nostrano brand Genoa Mild Sausage may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes and has been recalled by the manufacturer.
The Health Hazard Alert was issued late yesterday, on the heels of a recall of approximately one pound of a different Nostrano product – Sopressata sausage – in the United States.
The recalled sausage is sold in 325g packages, labeled with a Best before date of 09 JL 09 (same Best before date as the sausage recalled in the US), and codes 91009 and 1017. The product was distributed only in the province of Québec.
Consumers who purchased the recalled sausage should return it to the store for a refund. For more information about this recall, please contact Guy-Bernard Tené of Nostrano Inc., at 514-271-4688, ext. 235.
