Anyone who has a 4.54 kg bag of the product with a package of 01/21/19 should throw it out or return it to the location where it was purchased.

“Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick,” said a release from the CFIA.

“Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness.”

If you think you’ve become sick from consuming this product, you should call your doctor as soon as possible.
