Cold cuts bought from a Montreal-area deli and butcher may not be safe to eat.

Quebec's food inspection ministry says multiple products sold at Amsellem butcher shop, located at 5450 Westminster Ave. in Cote St. Luc, may be contaminated with Listeria-causing bacteria.

The suspect meats are:

  • anything produced by Charcuterie Laost
  • anything produced by Charcuterie Milano
  • Smoked sausage
  • Veal Supreme


All of these items would have been cut or sliced to order for customers. and all were sold until Oct. 3, 2012.

Anyone who has these items in their home should throw them out and not eat them.

Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria likely will not look or smell spoiled.

Listeria is a deadly bacteria that can cause breathing problems, high fevers, headaches, miscarriages and death.
