Rucker’s Wholesale and Service Co., in conjunction with Health Canada, has issued an official recall of food sold at retail due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination, which can cause Listeriosis, a serious bacterial infection.
The Bridgeport, IL-based food distributor is recalling Cabela’s Classic Candies brand Cajun Hot Mix, sold at Cabela’s locations in Alberta, New Brunswick and Saskatchewan, and Uncle Buck's brand Cajun Hot Mix, Sunflower Kernel, and Sweet & Salty Trail Mix, sold at Bass Pro Shops locations in Alberta, New Brunswick and Ontario.
Rucker’s Wholesale and Service Co., Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shop are not listed with ASI, but a search of ESP found almost 60 industry suppliers that sell food products in Canada.
While there have been no reported illnesses, all affected products should be immediately thrown away or returned to the store where they were purchased. Consumers can contact Rucker’s Wholesale and Service Co. at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling (800) 663-1857. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is currently conducting a safety investigation, which may lead to further recalls. For more information, go to www.inspection.gc.ca/contactus.
