Check your fridge! If you tend to buy pre-packaged salad and veggies, you might want to look and see if there's an Eat Smart Sweet Kale Vegetable Salad Kit in there. Certain 794g bags of the salad are being recalled in six provinces across the country, because they could be contaminated with Listeria.
This specific recall applies to salads sold in six provinces (New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island and Quebec) with a best-before date of July 17, 2019 and the product code 7 09351 891403 – but I'd consider throwing out any Eat Smart kale products just in case.
No related illnesses have been reported, but if you think you became sick after eating this salad mix, you could contact your doctor. Any food that has been contaminated with Listeria might not smell bad or appear spoiled, but it can make you sick. Ingesting the bacteria can lead to vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headaches and neck stiffness. Pregnant people, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are most susceptible and should take extra precautions to avoid this salad kit.
Stores are removing the affected bags from their shelves, and if you have any in your home, you should return them wherever you picked them up. So far, no other Eat Smart products have been affected.
