Canada – Risk of E. coli, Listeria spurs warning about Polonia Sausage House products

Food Safety News

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.
