Salami recall because of listeria

Concord Premium Meats Ltd. is recalling Marc Angelo brand Genoa Salami because it might be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes food-poisoning bacteria.

Listeria is what killed 23 people who ate luncheon meats from the Maple Leaf Foods Inc. plant in Toronto in 2008. The outbreak cost the company more than $20 million.

In Concord’s case, only one product is being recalled. Maple Leaf recalled 243.

The Marc Angelo salami being recalled is in 100-gram packages marked best before Dec. 1.
