A possible bacteria contamination has triggered a recall over a line of frozen chicken strips in western Canada, including B.C.

Dole Fresh Vegetables is recalling Dole brand Baby Spinach with Tender Reds from the Canadian market due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

No illnesses have been linked to the recalled product. Anyone who finds this product in their homes should throw it away or return it to the store.

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

Health Canada says the risk is heightened for pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.

Once the bacteria enters the bloodstream it causes a disease called listeriosis which is incredibly unsafe and according to NPR results in death in one out of five people infected. Listeria leads to sickness causing fever, nausea, and muscle aches.

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

In that case, a recall was issued for packaged salads produced at a Springfield, Ohio, processing plant; PC Organics products were also part of that recall.

Health Canada says the pre-cooked fare may be contaminated with a strain of Listeria.
