Reason for Recall: Possible E. coli and Listeria
Company: Polonia Sausage House
Product: Sausage and Salami
Inspectors from Vancouver Coastal Health have discovered a local family-owned business did not use proper processing in the production of meat products including sausages and salami, which could allow for growth of potentially deadly bacteria.
The health department on the West Coast of Canada has issued a public warning for eight different products from Polonia Sausage House. A recall has been initiated, but there is concern consumers may have unused portions of the products in their homes.
“During an inspection, inspectors discovered that these products were not processed using a validated method consistent with food safety standards. The retailer has stopped selling the items and is fully cooperating. No illnesses have been reported linked to these products,” according to the public warning. “Customers are being advised to either throw the products out or return them to the place of purchase.”
Polonia Sausage House stores sold the implicated meats from Aug. 1 through Nov. 2. Other than the types of processed meats and the locations that sold them, the warning does not include any packaging codes or label information that consumers could use to identify the recalled products. Bacteria that may have contaminated the products include E. coli O157:H7 and Listeria, both of which can cause serious and sometimes life-threatening illnesses or death.
The kinds of processed meat included in the recall are:
- Cervelat Salami;
- Polish Salami;
- Ziger Salami;
- Hungarian Salami;
- Polish Smoked Sausage;
- Hot Hungarian; and
- Gypsy Salami.
Polonia Sausage House manufactured and sold all of the recalled meats, according to the Vancouver health department warning.
Store locations listed in the warning are:
- Vancouver Sausage, 2434 E. Hastings St., Vancouver;
- Vancouver Deli, 4286 Fraser St., Vancouver;
- Surrey Bakery 14641 108th Ave., Surrey; and
