OTTAWA — The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) says Rosemount brand cooked diced chicken meat is being recalled due to possible Listeria contamination.

The CFIA says the recall was triggered by its investigation into a foodborne illness outbreak that is also being investigated by the Public Health Agency of Canada.

The product was sold in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec and Saskatchewan.

The CFIA says it’s possible the chicken was distributed in all provinces across the country in 4.54-kilogram packages with a date of Jan. 21, 2019.
