A number of plant-based refrigerated drinks have been recalled by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency due to contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has issued a recall that affects some plant-based refrigerated drinks due to potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

The recall includes certain Silk and Great Value brand beverages.

Ontario's Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Kieran Moore, issued a statement today on the recall.

“On July 8, 2024, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) announced a recall that affects certain Silk® and Great Value brand plant-based refrigerated beverages as they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Consumers are asked to visit the CFIA’s website for a complete listing of all recalled products and to visit the website regularly as there may be recalls of additional products as the food safety investigation continues," Dr. Moore's statement said.

"Ontarians are reminded to check their fridges for the recalled products and if any are found, they should be immediately discarded or returned to the location where they were purchased. Do not consume any recalled products. Contamination with Listeria does not change the smell, taste or appearance of food.

Moore added that, as of July 8, there had been nine confirmed cases of listeriosis reported in Ontario as part of the investigation and there had been five hospitalizations associated with this outbreak investigation.
