Barossa Fine Foods pate recall after listeria detection

South Australians are advised to not consume selected pates from Barossa Fine Foods after the detection of listeria.

South Australians are advised to not consume selected pates from Barossa Fine Foods after the detection of listeria.

The Department for Health and Wellbeing’s Acting Director of Food and Controlled Drugs Branch, Joanne Cammans, said the department received confirmation that during routine testing, Listeria had been detected in three products made by Barossa Fine Foods.

“While investigations are ongoing into a recall of similar products last month, Barossa Fine Foods have initiated a recall of these other pates,” Ms Cammans said.

“We ask that any South Australians with these pates in their fridges either return them to their place of purchase or throw them away.

“While we have not received notification of anyone contracting Listeria from any of these products, the infection can be extremely serious if it is contracted by the elderly, pregnant women or people with weakened immune systems.

“While many people who are exposed to Listeria often only experience mild illness it can be more serious in at-risk groups, so all South Australians should avoid eating these products.”

Products included in the recall from Barossa Fine Foods include:
• Duck & Walnut Pate 110g UBD 17 December 2021
• Black Pepper & Port Pate 110g UBD 17 December 2021
• Duck Terrine Pate 110g UBD 17 December 2021

Listeria infection starts with flu-like symptoms such as fever, chills, muscle aches, nausea, and sometimes diarrhoea. People can start experiencing symptoms within a few days, but symptoms can take up to six weeks to appear after eating contaminated product.

Those most at-risk include pregnant women and their unborn babies, newborn babies, the elderly, people of all ages with immune systems weakened by disease or illness, and anyone on medication that can suppress the immune system.

If symptoms develop, people are advised to see their GP and those in the at-risk groups should consult their GP as early as possible if any symptoms appear.
