The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says people should not consume the affected products. They should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.
Food contaminated with Listeria may not look or smell bad, but can still make people sick. It can cause vomiting, nausea, fever, muscle aches, severe headaches, neck stiffness and, in severe cases, death.
People with weakened immune systems such as the elderly and those who are pregnant are particularly vulnerable. Listeria can cause premature delivery, stillbirth or newborn infection.
There have been no illnesses reported in connection with the recalled products.
The products have been sold in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, P.E.I. and Newfoundland and Labrador.
The recall is an update to an earlier recall warning issued on Oct. 30 that affected one kale product.
