The following Cabela's Classic Candies brand product has been sold in Cabela locations in Alberta, New Brunswick, and Saskatchewan and the Uncle Buck's brand products have been sold in Bass Pro Shop locations in Alberta, New Brunswick, and Ontario.
If you have any of the products listed below, do not consume them, and return them to the place of purchase or safely dispose of them to ensure no one ingests them.
From the Healthy Canadians website, here is some information on Listeria, and how it can affect people who have consumed the product:
"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."
