The CFIA says Lady York Foods is recalling sliced Mortadella products due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The recall applies to all Mortadella products sliced and sold from the deli counter at Lady York Foodsbetween Dec. 2, 2014 and Feb. 24, 2015.

The CFIA did not say how many people had reported illness related to the recalled product.
