    Recall of Filicette and Venetian brand sausages in B.C., Alberta, Ontario, and Quebec

    Twelve in Ontario, Quebec sickened in salmonella outbreak linked to sausages
    National Post
    October 24, 2019

    Federal officials say an outbreak of salmonella illness that sickened a dozen people in Ontario and Quebec has been linked to a brand of sausage. The Public Health Agency of Canada says the outbreak appears to be ongoing, in spite of a recall of the affected sausages.

    The agency says the source of the outbreak is Filicetti brand Italian Style mild, dry, cured sausage.

    Ten people in Ontario and two in Quebec have become sick.

    The agency is requesting that Canadians not eat any of the affected food - including the Filicetti brand and others recalled earlier this month.

    Infants, children and seniors are most at risk of becoming sick, along with those who have compromised immune systems.

    Symptoms include fever, chills, diarrhea, cramps, headache, nausea and vomiting.

    The public health agency says the illness often clears up on its own within a week, but in some cases it can become severe and require hospitalization.

    Public Health Notice — Outbreak of Salmonella illnesses linked to Filicetti brand Italian Style mild, dry, cured sausage
    Public Health Canada
    October 23, 2019

    The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) is collaborating with provincial public health partners, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and Health Canada to investigate an outbreak of Salmonella infections occurring in Ontario and Quebec. The outbreak appears to be ongoing, as recent illnesses continue to be reported to PHAC.

    Based on the investigation findings to date, exposure to Filicetti brand Italian Style mild, dry, cured sausage has been identified as a source of the outbreak. Some of the individuals who became sick reported eating Filicetti brand Italian Style mild, dry, cured sausage before their illnesses occurred. Other ill individuals reported regularly consuming Filicetti brand dry sausages before getting sick. The investigation is ongoing, and it is possible that other sources could be identified.

    On October 16, 2019, the CFIA issued a food recall warning for various ready-to-eat dry sausage products that tested positive for Salmonella, including Filicetti brand Italian Style mild, dry, cured sausage.

    Following the October 16th recall, additional laboratory testing of a food sample of Filicetti brand Italian Style mild, dry, cured sausage was completed. Laboratory analysis has determined that both the recalled Filicetti brand sausage product and the ill individuals in Ontario and Quebec have the same genetic strain of Salmonella.

    The CFIA has since identified additional affected products and has issued an updated food recall warning. For additional details on all recalled product names and lot codes, please consult CFIA's website.

    Canadians are advised not to eat any of the recalled products or any foods containing the recalled products. Food service establishments are advised not to sell or serve any recalled products, or any items that may have been prepared or produced using recalled products.

    The CFIA is continuing its food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. If additional products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated food recall warnings.
