Canada – Notice not to consume minced meat sold by Supermarché Perrier et Martel inc. (Metro Plus) – STEC E.coli

MAPAQ

MAPAQ, in collaboration with Supermarché Perrier et Martel inc. (Metro Plus), located at 6155, boulevard Arthur-Sauvé, in Laval , is warning the population not to consume the products indicated in the table below, as these foods are likely to contain the bacterium E. coli which produces shigatoxins .

Product name Formats Targeted lot

Variable weight
All formats

Units sold bearing the following packaging date: 2021FE15

“Lean ax pork”
“Minced beef / pork / veal”

The products that are the subject of this advisory were only offered for sale on February 15, 2021 , and only at the location identified above. They were placed on a polystyrene tray and covered with plastic wrap. They were sold refrigerated.

The operator is voluntarily recalling the products in question. He agreed with MAPAQ to disseminate this warning as a precautionary measure. People who have any of these products in their possession are advised not to consume it. They must return it to the establishment where they bought it or throw it away.

It should be noted that proper cooking of meat destroys the E. coli bacteria in all cases. Preparing ready-made meals, such as spaghetti sauce, shepherd’s pie, or meat pie, requires a fairly long cooking time and a temperature high enough to destroy the bacteria.

It should be noted that no case of illness associated with the consumption of these foods has been reported to MAPAQ so far.

Food contaminated with the shigatoxin- producing E. coli bacteria may not look or smell spoiled, but eating these foods can cause serious illness or death. They are manifested by diarrhea and abdominal pain, often accompanied by blood in the stool. These symptoms usually appear two to ten days after eating a contaminated food. Nausea, vomiting and sometimes fever can be associated with it. When these symptoms appear, it is strongly recommended to consult a doctor without delay. Most symptoms go away within five to ten days.
