Lazy or just Stupid, Part VII

OTTAWA — The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is advising of a voluntary recall of two bacon products over concerns about Listeria contamination.

The recall affects Pillers “Taste Better than Bacon” Maple Flavoured Smoked Ham and Lean’n’ Tasty Smoked Ham Maple Flavour Bacon Style Slices in 375-gram packages.

The affected Pillers packages have best before dates of May 19 and May 26, while the Lean’n’ Tasty packages bear a May 26 best before date.

The products may have been distributed nationally by Piller Sausages and Delicatessens Ltd. of Waterloo, Ont.

There have been no reported illnesses associated with consumption of the products.

The agency says food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria can cause listeriosis, leading to high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk.

Bacon products?!  These are not bacon products, Canadian Press.  They are smoked ham products with “bacon style” flavoring.


Way to undermine the public’s confidence in delicious real bacon.
