Hastings and Prince Edward Counties/January 28, 2016 - On January 22, 2016, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) issued a recall of various pre-packed salads from the marketplace due to possible Listeria contamination.
This recall applies to all products manufactured from Dole brand pre-packaged chopped salads, salad blends, leafy greens, and certain PC Organics brand leafy greens. Affected products can be identified with a product code beginning with the letter "A" in the upper right-hand corner of the package.
Food contaminated with Listeria 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.
Please check your refrigerator for the recalled product. If found, discard the product or return it to the location where it was purchased.
