Recalled Maple Leaf Products Found In Montreal

Recalled Shopsy's pepperoni sticks were found at a convenience store in
Montreal by CTV on Wednesday, Sept. 3, 2008.

From CTV News:

Maple Leaf Foods products that have been recalled because of possible contamination with Listeria were found in at least two Montreal stores on Wednesday, as Prime Minister Stephen Harper vowed to have an independent investigation into the outbreak.

CTV Montreal found a box of Hygrade pepperoni sticks -- included in the recall list -- at a convenience store. The owner said his family had purchased the products from a supplier about two weeks ago, but he had not been told it should be taken off the shelves.

"We didn't get any report," he said. "We didn't get anything."

At another convenience store, CTV Montreal found Shopsys pepperoni sticks that had also been included in the recall list. Their product code had "97B" -- linking it to the Maple Leaf Foods plant in Ontario that has been linked to the outbreak.
