Eat Smart kale salad kits are under recall in Canada. Government sample testing returned positive results for Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
Canadian officials did not report how may pounds or packages of the kale salad mixes are subject to the recall. The CFIA notice says retailers nationwide received the implicated packaged salads. The agency did not provide names or locations of the retailers.
“Industry is recalling Eat Smart brand Salad Shake Ups – Sweet Kale from the marketplace due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. Consumers should not consume the recalled product,” according to the recall notice.
“This recall was triggered by Canadian Food Inspection Agency test results. The CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. If other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated food recall warnings.”
According to its website, Apio Inc. is one of the largest shippers of fresh-cut vegetables in the U.S. and Canada. It launched the Eat Smart brand in 1996.
