Listeria risk: Belleisle Foods initiates recall of coleslaw



Canadian firm Belleisle Foods is recalling its coleslaw because of possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

Belleisle Foods Ltd. distributed the coleslaw in New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island, according to the recall notice posted by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

“Consumers should not consume the recalled product,” the notice warns. “Check to see if you have recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.”

To determine whether they have the recalled 227-gram packages of Belleisle Farms branded coleslaw in their homes, consumers should look for date code “18SE25” and the UPC number 0 33383 65260 3.

According to foodsafetynews.com, no illnesses have been confirmed in relation to the recalled Belleisle Farms branded coleslaw. The company initiated the recall, but the CFIA has launched an investigation and will post additional recall notices if necessary.
