Circle K recalls all Grab & Go products from its branches in Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia

QUEBEC CITY, June 30, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The management of Circle K stores has recalled all of its Grab & Go products (sandwiches, bagels, wraps, and subs) from all of its branches in Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. The recall will be complete by the end of today.

The recall is in response to an alert issued by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency concerning products manufactured by King's Processing Ltd. that may be contaminated with the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes.

While the alert states that it is Circle K brand products that may be contaminated, it is in fact Grab & Go brand products distributed by Circle K that are affected.

While the alert affects a very limited number of products, to reassure its clientele, Circle K management has taken expanded preventive measures in all its maritime establishments where sandwiches are sold. To date, there have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products.

Circle K will do all the necessary verifications and inform its clients when Grab & Go products are once again available in its stores.

Fresh sandwiches bearing the Circle K label are in no way affected by the CFIA alert and are thus still available in many Circle K branches in the Atlantic region.
