Salad kits recalled due to listeria concern may have been sold nationally

A variety of chopped salad kits that may have been sold across the country have been recalled due to possible listeria contamination.

The kits, sold under the brand name Eat Smart, were sold in New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec and possibly across the rest of Canada.

The agency says the affected products should not be eaten and should either be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

Food contaminated with listeria can cause vomiting, nausea, fever, muscle aches, severe headaches and neck stiffness, and in severe cases even death.

The recall was triggered by test results. The agency said no illnesses have been reported in connection with the products.
