Salads Recalled From Canadian Stores For Potential Listeria Contamination

Safeway and Buy-Low Foods in Canada are recalling Caesar salad products due to possible Listeria contamination.

The following products were sold at Buy-Low Foods and Nesters Market in Alberta and British Columbia, and at Safeway and St. Martin’s Family Foods in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Saskatchewan.

This recall was triggered by the company. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. If other high-risk products are recalled, CFIA will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings.

There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products.

Consumers are warned not to eat the recalled products. The products should be thrown out 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.
