Chicken products recalled

Pinty’s brand Italian style chicken schnitzel is subject to a recall on suspicion of listeria contamination.

The product, in the four kilogram package, carries an 8172 code on the package. This recall follows one announced Aug. 9 of Pinty’s oven roasted chicken breast strips in the one kg package with best-before dates of Aug. 9 and Aug. 15, 2018.

The schnitzel was distributed nationally to hotels, restaurants and institutions, according to a news release from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, while the chicken strips were distributed in Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba and British Columbia through retail stores.

The recall was triggered by CFIA test results and an investigation is underway. No one has become ill from eating the products, the CFIA said.

Those who have purchased the products should throw them out or return them to place of purchase.

Eating food contaminated with listeria can cause nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness.
