Apple Ridge Apples Recall — Foster's Supermarket

Apple Ridge Apples Recall

January 25, 2018

Foster’s Food Fair-IGA would like to announce a recall on ‘Apple Ridge’ Apples, due to possible contamination. The recalled products may be contaminated with Listeria Monocytogenes.

Listeria monocytogenes (Listeria) is a foodborne disease-causing bacteria; the disease is called listeriosis. Listeria can invade the body through a normal and intact gastrointestinal tract. Once in the body, Listeria can travel through the blood stream but the bacteria are often found inside cells. Listeria also produces toxins that damage cells. Listeria invades and grows best in the central nervous system among immune compromised persons, causing meningitis and/or encephalitis (brain infection). In pregnant women, the fetus can become infected, leading to spontaneous abortion, stillbirths, or sepsis (blood infection) in infancy.

Foster’s IGA does not carry ‘Apple Ridge’ Apples and has not been affected by this recall.
