Sobeys Inc. is recalling certain Sobeys brand packaged vegetable products from the marketplace due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
Consumers should not consume the recalled products described in the chart below:
Anyone who may have become sick from consuming a recalled product should call their doctor.
Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still cause illness.
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.
This recall was triggered by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency's (CFIA) inspection activities. The CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. If other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings.
The CFIA is verifying that industry is removing recalled product from the marketplace.
