A Sobey's brand of kale salad sold in grocery stores in B.C. and other provinces has been recalled due to possible listeria contamination.

Sobey's has removed the Compliments brand Sweet Kale Blend salad from its shelves in grocery stores in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland and Labrador, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

Sobey's operates IGA, Safeway, Thrifty Foods and FreshCo brand stores in B.C.

The inspection agency urges customers to check to see if they have the salad in their fridges and to throw them out or return them to the store where they were purchased.

The kale salad — which was sold in 255-gram bags with best before dates of Oct. 28 and 31, Nov. 1, 2 and 3 — may not look or smell spoiled.

There have not been any illnesses reported but anyone with symptoms should see a doctor right away.

“Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness,” the inspection agency states. “Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk. Although infected pregnant women may experience only mild, flu-like symptoms, the infection can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn or even stillbirth. In severe cases of illness, people may die.”
