Dole recalls fresh packaged spinach salads in Canada for Listeria risk By News Desk

A previous version identified Health Canada as the origin of the recall.

Health Canada says Pinty's Delicious Foods Inc.is recalling Pinty's brand Oven Roasted Chicken Breast Strips due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The pre-cooked chicken strips are from two batches with best-before dates of August 9 and August 15. The CFIA says the products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were bought.

Consumers are advised to check their freezers for the recalled products.




The spinach may not look or smell off, but a health risk remains, the CFIA highlighted.

The agency says that pregnant and elderly people are particularly at risk. Symptoms can include nausea, fever and muscle aches. Listeria can cause listeriosis, which can make people very sick and in severe cases even cause death. Washing vegetables and fruits along with proper food handling are some ways to prevent illness from listeria.

A recall has been issued by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency over a popular brand of chicken strips sold across Saskatchewan.

This isn't the first time Dole has had to deal with a listeria issue.
