OTTAWA - Costco is recalling Organic by Nature brand frozen Organic Sweet Peas due to possible Listeria contamination.
The product was sold in 2.5 kg packages at Costco locations in British Colombia, Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan (UPC code 8 46355 00061 9).
Anyone who purchased the sweat peas should return them to the store or throw them out.
The Listeria bacteria can cause a range of symptoms including vomiting, fever and severe headaches, however, there have been no reported illnesses linked to the product.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the recall in Canada was triggered by a recall of the product in the United States.
It's the second recall this month of a food product sold at Cosco.
Nature's Touch Organic Berry Cherry Blend was recalled a week ago due to possible Hepatitis A contamination.
The frozen berry mix was sold at Costco locations in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador.
The Public Health Agency of Canada said 12 cases of Hepatitis A had been linked to the product — nine in Ontario, two in Quebec, and one in Newfoundland and Labrador.
