An Ontario-based facility is recalling its sliced apples over concerns they may be contaminated with Listeria after someone reported getting sick.
Sun Rich Fresh Foods Inc., in Brampton, Ont., distributes sliced apple snacks for a number of companies across Canada, including grocery stores, Starbucks and Subway.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says consumers should check to determine if your sliced apple products have been recalled and, if so, throw them out.

- Persistent fever.
- Muscle aches.
- Neck stiffness.
