Italian company in cured meats Listeria alert
An Italian cured meat company is at the centre of a health scare in Canada after authorities warned that two of its products could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) this week issued two alerts warning the public against consuming Fumagalli La Salumeria’s Seasoned Dry Cured Pork Loin and its Spianata Romata salami over fears of tainting with the foodborne bacteria.

A voluntary recall on two batches of the meats had been launched by the importer, Les Aliments Edesia Foods Inc, with Canadian food safety officials saying they were monitoring its effectiveness.

The agency said the affected Seasoned Dry Cured Pork Loin products, which had been distributed in the province of Quebec, had a batch number of 119062 with a Best Before date of 30 August 2011 and had been sold in 1.2-1.6kg units.

It cautioned that the meat was also sliced at retail and that the original batch and date details may not appear at supermarket counters.

The 100g packs affected packs of Spianata Romana Salami, made by Fumagalli Pronto e Fresco had batch number 119066 and a Best Before of 5 July 2011.

The CFIA said yesterday there had so far been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of the Italian products.
