Canada: Dole baby spinach recalled over listeria concerns
The 142-gram packages of spinach under recall were sold in Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario, and possibly across the rest of the country, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).
The recalled product comes in a hard plastic shell packaging with a best before date reading 18-Au-04, with time codes starting with W202011, and UPC 0 71430 06069 8.
No illnesses have been linked to the recalled product. Canadians are urged to throw out any recalled product or to return it to the store where it was purchased.
The spinach may not look or smell off, but a health risk remains, the CFIA highlighted.
Listeria can cause listeriosis, which can make people very sick and in severe cases even cause death. Symptoms include vomiting, nausea, muscle aches and neck stiffness.
