Wieners recalled over listeriosis fears

Maple Leaf Foods Inc. is recalling nine wiener products because they may contain traces of the Listeria bacteria.

Maple Leaf Foods Inc. is recalling nine wiener products because they may contain traces of the Listeria bacteria.

The wieners are produced at a Maple Leaf facility in Hamilton under the Hygrade, Shopsy’s and Maple Leaf brand names.

The company says in a statement there have been no reported illnesses and this is a precautionary measure only.

The best-before dates on the recalled products range from Sept. 8 to Sept. 17. The dates, the number for the Hamilton plant “EST. 611” and Line 1 “L1” are on an inkjet stamp located on the edge of the packaging.

Dr. Randall Huffman, the chief food safety officer at Maple Leaf, says in a statement the company is now “ultra-cautious about Listeria.”

The Maple Leaf listeriosis outbreak last summer claimed 22 lives across Canada.
