Ottawa Public Health on Sunday notified the public of a precautionary food recall issued on Friday by Quebec’s Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPAQ). The recalled products were “ready-to-eat” items prepared at Marché Adonis, at 920 boul. Maloney Ouest in Gatineau, with best-before dates between May 8 and May 18, 2018.
Included are various pasta, pizza, kibbeh, rolls, Armenian pizza, or lahmajoun, sambousik, or meat pies, and turnovers sold up until May 17.
No cases of illness were reported, but the foods may have been contaminated by the hepatitis A virus, which affects the liver and is transmitted by ingesting contaminated feces. Symptoms, which can take up to seven weeks to develop, include nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain and yellow skin or eyes.
People who have purchased these foods are advised not to consume them. If you are concerned that you may have eaten any of the recalled food items, contact Ottawa Public Health at 613-580-6744, weekdays (311 on weekends or holidays), or consult a health professional.
