Meat recall.

Postby BigDXLT » Fri Aug 29, 2008 5:14 pm

I'm sure my fellow canuckians have heard of the Maple Leaf recall.

Just know that Schneiders (and a number of other brands) all fall under the same corporate banner. While the (very delicious) Pizza variety pack (that I consumed half of last night with cheese and crackers) isn't listed directly in their recall list, there are enough closely related products that I have concluded this product is one in the same. It's a shame really, but the effects I've been feeling since about, oh, 2am and over the course of the day, are not pleasant, particularly considering how I scoffed at the problem just yesterday while consuming the delicious meats. Nothing serious thus far, but just the same I'm throwing out the rest of the (delicious) package.

Are you sure it isn't just a case of "placebo" or perhaps food poisoning (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_poisoning) from samonella, just saying because the time frame you describe, Listeria (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Listeria) is a longer incubation period, if I am not mistaken.

If you still think its the Listeria thing, see a doc right away, you can get on antibiotics to kill the little bastard of a parasite.

You could very well be correct about it being something else (definately not placebo, it woke me up at 2am). Given what I actually ate yesterday, it might have even come from the sandwich I ate at lunch. I simply decided, upon seeing that a product in my fridge was a doppleganger for an item on the list and the timing of this illness, I'd rather not take the chance to further eat those delicious bits of salami, pepperoni and ham.

I think I'll stick to a nice sanitary deep fried everything until this blows over.

Side note to the above sentence: Deep fried broccoli is disgusting. That is all.

Also, I'll see a doctor if any other symptoms appear. I'm not a fan of taking antibiotics, or any medication for no good reason, and the doctors up north here love to hand the prescriptions out like candy.
