Peterborough’s Central Smith Creamery has expanded its recall of Wholesome Farms brand Sundae Cup products from the marketplace due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

Initially issued on March 31st for vanilla sundae cups only, the recall has now been expanded for other products in the line including sugar-free light vanilla, butterscotch, orange sherbet, lime sherbet, and chocolate.

While Central Smith Creamery manufactures frozen desserts for the consumer market, the recalled sundae cups are primarily used in food service institutions. Central Smith manufactures products for health care facilities, including yogurt bars, nine flavours of sundae cups, and eight flavours of frozen dessert made with coconut oil.

The cups are distributed through Sysco Corporation in Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, Manitoba, and possible nationally.

This recall was triggered by Canadian Food Inspection Agency test results. There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products.

Food service institutions such as hospitals and nursing homes should not serve or use the recalled products and people should not consume the recalled products described below:

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.
