The product was distributed in all Canadian provinces except Prince Edward Island by the company involved, Costco Wholesale Canada Inc. CFIA noted that there have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products. CFIA advises the public not to consume the recalled products described below:

Anyone who has recalled products in their home is being advised to throw them out or returned them 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.
