Raspberry Products Have Been Recalled in Quebec Due To The Presence Of Virus

Quebec has seen a series of food recalls in recent days due to raspberries potentially contaminated with norovirus, a dangerous pathogen. The raspberries in question come from Chile.

Yesterday, recalls were issued for the France Délices brand Choco-Raspberry Crunchy. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency issued a warning to consumers who bought the product up to and including June 3.

Recalls have now been made for more products containing raspberries, as these may also be contaminated with Norovirus. The Ministère de l'Agricuture, Pêcheries et Alimentation du Québec (MAPAQ) issued the recall on Wednesday.

The following products are being recalled if you bought them on or before June 4th from the companies listed in bullet points:

Norovirus is a pathogen which causes diarrhea, vomiting, nausea and stomach cramps. These symptoms usually begin 24 to 48 hours after the contaminated product is ingested.

Symptoms tend to disappear on their own in 1 to 2 days in healthy adults. Health Canada recommends that you call your doctor if you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product.
