Provincial and municipal authorities are warning consumers not to eat food that was purchased from Ernie and Ellie’s, a Côte St-Luc restaurant and catering company, on or before Sept. 29.
Quebec’s Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, and the city of Montreal’s food inspection division are also warning consumers not to eat a variety of prepared food — including salads, soups and dips — prepared by the company and sold through other distributers.
Consumers who have purchased the affected products should throw them out or return them to where they were purchased, the ministry said on Sunday. Even if the products do not show signs of deterioration or smell suspicious, consuming them can still pose a health risk.
The food was not prepared and packaged in a way to ensure its safety, according to the authorities.
The products sold through other retailers are refrigerated, packaged in clear plastic and have the words “Ernie & Ellie” on the label
