Certain sprouts sold in BC recalled due to Listeria concern

OTTAWA - Certain sprouts being sold at Canada Safeway stores in British Columbia are being recalled because of concerns over possible Listeria contamination.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency the LifeForce Foods brand product includes Brocco Sprouts, Spicy Sprouts and Alfalfa Sprouts sold in 85-gram plastic containers.

The CFIA says there have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products.

Canada Safeway Ltd. of Calgary is voluntarily recalling the affected product and the federal agency is monitoring the recall.

Food contaminated with Listeria may not look or smell spoiled, but eating it may cause listeriosis, which can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea.

Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk.
