Dole recalls salad kits for possible Listeria contamination

Dole Canada is recalling some salad kits sold nationally under the Dole and President’s Choice brands because of possible Listeria contamination. 

A recall notice issued by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency on Saturday said food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell bad but can still cause sickness.

It said people who are elderly, immunocompromised or pregnant are most at risk and that severe cases of illness can lead to death. 

Ingesting Listeria, the notice said, can cause vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness.

The CFIA said anyone who has the recalled salads in their home should throw them out or return them to the location where they were purchased. 

Anyone who is sick as a result of consuming a recalled product, the notice said, should call a doctor.
