Maple Leaf Foods is expanding a recall of its packaged meats and temporarily closing a Toronto plant that prepares the products.

A number of the affected products are part of a listeriosis outbreak investigation.

No direct link has been made between the affected products and illnesses, though the Public Health Agency of Canada and provincial public authorities are trying to confirm the source of the illnesses.

A statement from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency says some of the meat products, which are distributed to nursing homes, restaurants and deli counters across the country – including McDonald’s and Mr. Sub – tested positive for listeria bacteria.

Consumption of food tainted with Listeria can lead to high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea.

Maple Leaf is recalling all products prepared at the plant since June 2 and says it is temporarily closing the factory to re-evaluate its food safety procedures.
