Costco's Kirkland Signature chicken recalled due to possible listeria: CFIA

OTTAWA - The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is advising people not to consume Kirkland Signature brand grilled chicken breast strips due to possible listeria contamination.

The product, which is being recalled by Freshouse Foods Ltd., was sold at Costco stores in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, but may also have been sold in other provinces.

The recalled product was sold in 500-gram packages with a UPC code of 0-96619-70787-4 and best before dates of April 13 to April 26.

CFIA says there have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of the chicken but anyone who has the product at home should throw it out or return it to the store where it was purchased.

The recall was triggered by CFIA test results and the agency says it is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products.

Experts say food contaminated with listeria 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. Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk. In severe cases of illness, people may die.
