KENTVILLE, NS - The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has issued an updated food recall warning for Randsland brand Super Salad Kits.
Details published on the Canadian Food Inspection Agency website indicate a food recall warning issued on Aug. 26 has been updated to include additional product information. The updated recall was issued on Sept. 6, triggered by CFIA test results.
Randsland Farms Inc. is voluntarily recalling Randsland brand Super Salad Kit from the marketplace due to Listeria monocytogenes. Consumers should not consume the 454 gram Randsland Super Salad Kit carrying the best before date 090718, UPC 0 57225 00005 6.
The salad kits were distributed to retail stores in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI and Newfoundland and Labrador.
The CFIA says that if you think that you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor. Check to see if you have recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.
Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes 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.
There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of this product but pregnant women, elderly people 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.
The CFIA’s ongoing food safety investigation may lead to the recall of other products. If other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated food recall warnings.
This is the fourth voluntary recall of a Randsland brand product due to the presence of Listeria monocytogenes since the end of July. A recent post on the Randsland Farms Inc. Facebook page stated that it would be temporarily suspended production at its ready-to-eat facility to introduce changes that will make its products as safe as possible.
