Freshouse Foods Ltd. has recalled Kirkland Signature brand Grilled Chicken Breast Strips from the Canadian marketplace because of possible Listeria contamination, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency announced March 20, saying the product "is known to have been sold in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, but may also have been sold in other provinces."
CFIA testing triggered the recall, and the agency is reported it is verifying that stores are removing the recalled products from the marketplace. No illnesses associated with the consumption of this product have been reported.
The recalled products are size 2 x 500 g, marked as "Best Before APR13-APR26 inclusive," and bear the UPC code 0 96619 70787 4.
Recalled products should be thrown away or returned to the store where they were purchased. "Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness. Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk. Although infected pregnant women may experience only mild, flu-like symptoms, the infection can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn or even stillbirth. In severe cases of illness, people may die," according to the agency.
