Costco Canada recalls chicken salad over listeria risk
Costco Canada is recalling Kirkland Signature brand roasted chicken salad because of a possible listeria contamination.
The recall covers salads that contain fully cooked sliced chicken breast. The salad was sold in all Canadian provinces except for Prince Edward Island. The universal product code numbers on the recalled packages start with 2 47321 and 2 47319. No illnesses have been reported related to the potential contamination.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said consumers who have the salads should throw them out or return them to Costco Wholesale Canada stores. The agency said the food may not look or smell spoiled. Symptoms of listeria infection can include fever, muscle aches, nausea, diarrhea, headaches and neck stiffness. The infection can be the most dangerous for newborns, older people, and pregnant women.
Costco Wholesale Corp. has 88 locations in Canada.
