The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is recalling various brands of cooked diced chicken meat products from the marketplace due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
Consumers should not consume and distributors, retailers and food service establishments such as hotels, restaurants, cafeterias, hospitals and nursing homes should not sell or use the recalled products described below.
The following products have been sold in British Columbia, Alberta, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec, and Saskatchewan.
If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor.
You should check to see if you have recalled products in your home or establishment. If you do, they should be thrown out or returned to the location 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.
There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products.
