The CFIA said that Levitts Foods (Canada) Inc. is recalling certain Compliments brand, Levitts brand, and The Deli-Shop brand deli meat products from which is sold in Sobeys and FreshCo grocery stores across Ontario.
The Agency said the “food recall warning” issued on Nov. 22 has now been updated to include additional products.
As of Dec. 7, there are now eight products that have been identified during the CFIA food safety investigation.
The website indicates that there has been one reported illness that may be associated with the consumption of these products and they are asking customers to check if they currently have the product in their home.
“Customers are asked to destroy and any of the product impacted by the recall and bring a receipt or product label back to the store where purchased for a full refund,” the website says.
