Canadian Woman Dead of Listeriosis
A Canadian woman has died of listeriosis, the first confirmed case of the food-borne illness in New Brunswick since a major food recall, officials said Monday.
The province's health department said the woman, who was in her 80s, had been a nursing home resident and died in a New Brunswick hospital, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported.
Officials haven't confirmed whether the woman's death is associated with the recall, the CBC said.
