A turnip sticks recall over Listeria concerns has been updated to include another brand and it now covers all of the Atlantic provinces, possibly the country, says the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

Compliments brand baby cut turnip sticks were added Thursday to the Sawler brand turnip sticks recall issued Jan. 31, as part of an ongoing investigation by the agency.

It determined the Compliments brand 340-gram bags, dated Feb. 11, 2018, with the UPC 0 68820 12504 4, could be contaminated with the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes.

The agency is also warning people not to consume Sawler brand, also sold in 340-gram bags and dated Feb. 11, 2018, with the UPC 6 21063 36600 3.

Food contaminated with Listeria may not look or smell spoiled, but it can cause a serious infection, called listeriosis.

Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache, and neck stiffness. In severe cases, it can even cause death.

The elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk, along with pregnant women. The infection can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn or even stillbirth, the recall warns.

No illnesses have been reported in connection with the consumption of the recalled products, said CFIA.

Fieldbrook Foods Corporation is clarifying that the previously announced voluntary recall of all orange cream bars and chocolate coated vanilla ice cream bars that were produced in 2017 on the company’s Hoyer 1 Line at its Dunkirk, NY plant (plant code 362677) also includes 28,751 cases of Raspberry Cream Bars that were included with Orange Cream Bars in ALDI seasonal split-case purchases. The split-cases were shipped between March and August 2017. These products are being recalled due to the possibility that they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only shortterm symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The Hoyer 1 Line in Dunkirk, NY is the only production line and the only Fieldbrook Foods plant (of 3) involved in this recall notice.
