According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency found that a random sample of the Sweet Kale/Chou Frise Doux with a “Best Before” date of Dec. 14, 2018, tested positive for Listeria Monocytogenes.

The company says it is not aware of any illnesses linked to the recalled products.

Symptoms of a listeria infection may include a high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. In some cases, it can cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women and fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Anyone who has the recalled product should throw it away or return it to the place of purchase for a refund. Consumers with questions can contact Apio at 1-800-626-2746, or visit its website at https://www.eatsmart.net.
