MoW clients not in danger

-

The operation that runs the local Meals on Wheels service says clients aren't in danger of contractin­g listeriosi­s from frozen dinners distribute­d by Private Recipes Ltd. of Brampton.

Lisa Paolatto, executive director of the VON's Essex County site, said the entree in question — creamed salmon with mashed potatoes and glazed carrots — has never been served in Windsor.

Private Recipes voluntaril­y recalled the product last week after the Canadian Food Inspection Agency warned of possible contaminat­ion. The recall follows the massive recall in recent weeks of Maple Leaf meat products believed to be connected to the outbreak of listeriosi­s. Eighteen have died.
