Costco Recalls Kirkland Signature Brand Roasted Chicken Salad In Nine Provinces Over Listeria Concerns

Be wary of this spring chicken.

According to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, Costco Wholesale Canada Inc. is issuing a recall on its Kirkland Signature brand roasted chicken salad in nine provinces. This action stems from concerns the product may contain a possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination, and consumers in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec and Saskatchewan are instructed not to eat the aforementioned food.

The CFIA notice also reports the company will be pulling all affected items from its shelves. The packages in question have expiration dates up to and including April 3 and a UPC code starting with 2 47321 or 2 47319.

The Canadian Press writes Listeria can "cause a serious, life-threatening illness, with severe symptoms that may include headache, poor co-ordination, seizures and neck stiffness." Other mild symptoms can include "fever, muscle aches, nausea and diarrhoea."

Back in March of 2014, Costco issued a similar recall on its Grilled Chicken Breast Strips.

However, in this particular case, no known illnesses have yet been reported in association with the chicken salad.
