Fears of E. coli contamination have forced the recall of veal liver in Ontario, federal health authorities say.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning the public not to eat White Valley brand Grain Fed Veal Liver products sold in five or 25 kilo boxes.
Retailers, the agency warned, may have sliced and sold the veal liver prepackaged or through a store’s meat counter.
The recall affects one lot, 110601, in Ontario and other lots sold in British Columbia and Quebec between June 1 and 14. White Valley Meat Packers is based in Toronto.
Some people have reported falling ill after eating the veal, the agency said. Food contaminated with E. coli may not look or smell spoiled but can induce stomach cramps, vomiting or serious illness.
The agency has also recalled several lots of Sterling Silver ground beef sold at a Thrifty Foods store in Victoria, B.C., which may contain small pieces of metal or plastic.
