An Ontario company is recalling an unknown amount of fresh-cut fruit salad products distributed to retailers and foodservice operations because of possible contamination with listeria monocytogenes.
All Fruits Ltd., Ottawa, Ontario, issued the voluntary recall after the Canadian Food Inspection Agency notified company officials that a sample of the fresh-cut products tested positive for the pathogen, according to the recall notice. No illnesses had been reported in relation to the products as of March 27.
Five products are included in the recall. All were distributed in the Quebec province to retailers, hotels, restaurants and institutional foodservice operations. All of the products have “best before” dates of April 23.
Fresh-cut fruit in the recall includes pineapple, cantaloupe, watermelon, apples, honeydews, oranges and red grapes. No information on suppliers or growers was included in the recall notice.
A spokeswoman for the Canadian Food Inspection Agency said All Fruit processes and packages fresh fruit at its own facility.
The company could not be reached for comment. A phone number listed online for All Fruits Ltd. is not in service.
