The products recalled by Fresh Express Incorporated have been sold in Manitoba and Ontario and may have been distributed in other provinces and territories.

The CFIA advises throwing out the recalled product or returning it to the store you bought it from. Call your doctor if you think you might have gotten sick from eating a recalled product.



“Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick,” officials wrote. “Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness.”

They added that pregnant people, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems are especially 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,” the recall announcement read.
