Nova Scotia’s Department of Agriculture and Meadowbrook Meat Market of Berwick are warning the public not to consume certain fully cooked boneless hams from Meadowbrook Meat Market because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
The products affected are fully cooked boneless hams with best before dates of April 1 and April 3.
The hams were sold at the Meadowbrook Meat Market retail store in Berwick, and at Alderney Landing Farm Market in Dartmouth, with limited wholesale distribution in mainland Nova Scotia.
There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of this product. The bacteria was discovered through internal quality assurance testing, says a Department of Agriculture news release.
