Ottawa, April 11, 2018 - The food recall warning issued on April 10, 2018 has been amended to correctly identify the affected products. The corrections for these products are marked by an asterisk (*).
R.T. Fresh Prepared Foods Inc. is recalling Culinary Creations Gourmet* brand & Denny's Express* brand roast beef-containing sandwiches from the marketplace due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. Consumers should not consume the recalled products described below.

What you should do
If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor.
Check to see if you have recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.
Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness. Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk. Although infected pregnant women may experience only mild, flu-like symptoms, the infection can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn or even stillbirth. In severe cases of illness, people may die.
