Eat Smart Salad Shake Ups in Tropical Lime, Asian Sesame and Sweet Kale are being recalled due to Listeria contamination fears, says the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

The updated recall now applies to those three varieties, with a best-before date of Dec. 29. The package size is 152 grams for Tropical Lime and 156 grams for the others.

The recall adds to one issued for the Sweet Kale variety earlier this month.

The agency widened the recall after an investigation.

What to do with recalled product

People with the recalled products should throw them out or return them to the store of purchase.

The agency said food contaminated with Listeria may not look or smell spoiled, but can still make people ill and may cause death in serious cases.

If consumers suspect they are sick because of consuming the product, they should consult a doctor, the release said.

Listeria symptoms can include:

  • Vomiting.
  • Nausea.
  • Persistent fever.
  • Muscle aches.
  • Severe headache.
  • Neck stiffness.

The agency said pregnant women infected with the bacteria may experience only mild, flu-like symptoms, but the infection could lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn or stillbirth.
