The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has confirmed several cases of potential contamination of Listeria monocytogenes linked to select Silk refrigerated beverages produced on a specific production line in a third-party manufacturer in Ontario and distributed by Danone Canada.

Upon learning of confirmed cases of Listeria monocytogenes linked to these Silk refrigerated beverage products, Danone Canada, together with the CFIA, took immediate action to issue a voluntary recall on 15 Silk refrigerated plant-based beverage SKUs. Danone has also preventatively halted all production and shipments coming from this facility, until further notice, to carry out a thorough investigation.

The official recall notice of the CFIA detailing the product information and instructions for safe disposal is available here.
