Update: Erie Meats Recent Recalls – April 27, 2018

CFIA has confirmed negative listeria mono test results for the below sampled products, this means that all deli products in the Erie Distribution facility will be released for immediate order fulfilment.  If you have placed these products on “hold” while waiting for the CFIA test results, please put them back into distribution.

CFIA has also confirmed through a L. Mono Comparative: 1803WGS-10N Clinical +CFIA isolates test that Erie Meat Products caused none of the previously reported illnesses. 

Thank you for your patience and continued support of Erie Meats as we work to bring our deli production facility back to full capacity.

Sincerely,

Simon Rosen

Update: Erie Meats Recent Recalls – April 19, 2018

We have been informed that the CFIA is seeking and testing other fresh deli products already in market (listed below). This is frustrating for us and more so for you, our key customers. Here is an update of the situation.

  • Erie Meats continues to cooperate fully with the CFIA on additional inspections of our facilities and products and understands their need for broad due diligence. We support their efforts and request that you do too.
  • We identified one area where water leakage under our smokehouse resulted in Listeria monocytogenes in a small, isolated section of our deli facility. This has been fully repaired and has been resolved. 
  • Please get and forward a signed Bill of Lading for any product taken and Erie Meats will provide a full reimbursement. We offer the assurance that all these products underwent independent testing before they were distributed. We have not been informed of any positive test results on any products below. Absolutely no issues or illnesses have been reported. Furthermore, if you have any additional concerns about any fresh deli products on hand, we will offer a full refund. Please contact your Sales Associate.
  • Our deli facility remains shut down entirely as we complete a comprehensive cleaning, sanitization and improvements as required.
  • We will not resume production or distribution of any fresh deli products until all independent test results, completed in cooperation with the CFIA, show the deli production facility exceeds standards.
  • We continue to work toward resuming production at our deli facility April 23 and will keep you updated on our progress.

We appreciate your understanding and support as we work tirelessly to resolve this fully and resume production.

RE: Erie Meats’ Response to Recall of Deli Classic Brand Seasoned Cooked Roast Beef

(Product code 92008 with a best before date of April 10 and April 17, 2018)

We are deeply sorry our Deli Classic Brand Seasoned Cooked Roast Beef (product code 92008 with a best before date of April 10 and April 17, 2018) was recalled on April 9, 2018 due to Listeria monocytogenes. Resolving this situation is our absolute top priority. At Erie Meats, we pride ourselves on producing quality, safe products. Recall of any product for any reason is completely unacceptable and we are committed to resolution and continual improvement.

The roast beef was produced in our deli production facility. We have voluntarily shut down this facility for a full review and are partnering with the CFIA to test products and evaluate production processes. We have sent notifications to hold and remove the recalled product from store shelves. Consumers who have the product should return it to their grocery store or throw it away.

We are:

  • Closely inspecting all aspects and methods of production to confirm they exceed industry best-practices for food safety
  • Committing to facility and/or production modifications as required, to ensure ongoing quality production
  • Fully cleaning and sanitizing the facility, machinery and transport areas before production resumes
  • Reviewing food safety protocols with facility staff and evaluating training procedures

No product will be sold until third-party testing deems production to be safe and fully compliant.

This recall affects only the deli production facility at the Listowel plant. All other production lines are running as normal; however, we are conducting a company-wide review of all food safety policies and procedures at every plant, facility and distribution centre to confirm industry quality standards are exceeded.

Erie Meats is a family-owned and operated business. Our exceptional food safety track record is our top priority. We are deeply committed to a path of continuous improvement and to fully resolving this situation.

We will provide updates as they are available. For more information, please contact Erie Meats at 1-800-275-8520 or info@eriemeats.com.

Sincerely,

Simon Rosen

Owner and President
