Sun Rich Recall Team: 1-800-661-0087

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — May 1st 2015 — Sun Rich Fresh Foods Inc. of Richmond, BC, Canada is voluntarily recalling sliced apple and products containing sliced apples, from its Northeast Fresh Facility located in Brampton, ON, Canada because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Apple slices and products containing sliced apples were distributed to IL, IN, KY, MI, MN, MO, ND, OH, WI and WV through retail stores, distributors and food service establishments. The recall is limited to product produced out of the Brampton, ON Canada facility which is identified by a 7 digit numerical lot code that begins with the number 2.

The voluntary recall was the result of an abundance of caution by Sun Rich following a routine sampling program by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) which revealed that the finished products possibly contained the bacteria.
