Canadian Bacon Recalled

A Canadian company is recalling about 380,000 pounds of Canadian bacon that may be contaminated with listeria.

No illnesses have been reported. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention classifies listeriosis as a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, pregnant women, newborns and adults with weakened immune systems.

The U.S. Agriculture Department says the recalled products have production dates before Aug. 10, and the containers have "EST No. 169A" and "Product of Canada." It was sold under the names Napoli, Stefano, Bellissimo, Olymel or Assoluti cooked diced bacon.

People with questions can call the manufacturer, Aliments Prince S.E.C., at 1-800-361-5800.

    They recall this and no one is sick, but what about the last one that killed people, that they knew the food was dangerous and sat back and did nothing.
