Two more varieties of Eat Smart bagged Salad Shake Ups have been added to a Canadian Food Inspection Agency recall due to listeria contamination concerns.
The avocado ranch and raspberry acai salads, both with a best before date of Dec. 14, 2018, join the already recalled sweet kale on the list.
The kale product was initially recalled on Dec. 4. The new recalls follow further investigation by the agency and also include sweet kale bags that have a Dec. 14 best-before date.
Anyone who has purchased these single-serve salads is asked to throw them out or return them to the store. People who think they may be sick as a result of eating recalled products should consult their doctor.
According to the CFIA website, symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness. Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk.
Although infected pregnant women may experience only mild, flu-like symptoms, the infection can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn or even stillbirth. In severe cases of illness, people may die.
