Ica recalls organic hot dogs due to Listeria concerns
Supermarket chain Ica has stopped selling a batch of its own brand of organic hot dogs due to concerns that some may have been contaminated with Listeria.
The 'I love Eco' sausages may have been sold throughout the country since August 29, in packs of 400 grams with the expiration date 2016-09-28.
According to a press release from Ica, the Listeria bacteria was discovered during a routine quality control check. The hot dogs have since been removed from supermarket shelves and Ica is asking customers who have bought and frozen the product to return it to their local store.
Eating food contaminated with the Listeria bacteria can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, pregnant women and newborns.
