Certified-organic microgreens brand recalled over health risk

Quebec-based greenhouse grower says product may be contaminated with listeria

Les Serres René Fontaine Inc. is recalling its certified-organic spicy microgreens mix under the Pousses et Cie brand from the marketplace in Quebec due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The Pierreville, Quebec-based company (translated to René Fontaine Greenhouses Inc.) sold the product, which is certified organic by Ecocert Canada, in 75-gram packages.

The recall was triggered by test results from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), which is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products.

There have been no reported illnesses, the agency said.
