Canada recalls Broccoli Soup due to Botulism Risk

No indication that it was imported to United States.

Canada’s food safety authorities is said to have warned against the consumption of Barrie Bros. Fresh Broccoli Soup for fear of contamination with the bacteria that causes botulism.

The public have been told about the consequences which are likely to be caused following the consumption of this soup.

The Fresh Broccoli Soup (Barrie’s Pressure Sealed Natural), sold in a 744 milliletre Mason glass jar with a metal lid is likely to contain Clostridium botulinum, which could lead to a life-threatening illness.

This soup also does not contain UPC or lot code and not even a best before date. Though this soup has been distributed in Ontario yet so far no illnesses have been reported in association with the soup, the CFIA asserted.

However the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, in conjunction with Cambridge, Ont.-based Barrie Bros have warned about the potential danger.
