The food agency asks customers to throw the mushrooms out or return them to the store they were bought.

“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,” said the CFIA.

Though there is confirmed distribution in Ontario and Quebec, there is also a chance of it having been distributed nationally.

There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these mushrooms, according to the CFIA.
