Listeria prompts sliced apples recall

Sun Rich Fresh Foods Inc. is recalling sliced apples and products containing sliced apples produced in its Brampton facility because some have been contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says that although there have been no confirmed illnesses, ‘consumers should not consume and distributors, retailers and food service establishments such as hotels, restaurants, cafeterias, hospitals and nursing homes should not sell or use the recalled products.”

The recall is for sliced apples sold under the Subway, Starbucks, Shoppers Drug Mart and Sun Rich labels.
