The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has added to a growing list of recalled salads from the brand Eat Smart due to a potential Listeria contamination.
On Monday the federal agency announced a recall for three more varieties of Eat Smart’s Salad Shake Ups – tropical lime, Asian sesame and sweet kale. All three will have best-before dates of Dec. 29, 2018.
The CFIA said the salad packets were sold nationally, and could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
On Dec. 14, avocado ranch, sweet kale and raspberry acai Salad Shake Ups were recalled for the same reason; they all had best-before-dates of Dec. 14. On Dec. 4, the company’s sweet kale Salad Shake Ups were recalled by the CFIA.
The agency said food contaminated with Listeria might not look or smell spoiled, but warned it can cause death if the case is severe.
Symptoms of Listeria poisoning can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness.
