Popular mushrooms recalled in B.C.: What you should do

Bags of Enoki Mushrooms may have a listeria contamination
These Enoki Mushrooms have been recalled by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

A popular brand of mushroom is being recalled by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) due to a possible listeria contamination.

Bags of Enoki Mushroom, which have been sold across B.C., are being taken off the shelves at the behest of the CFIA.

Consumers are being warned not to use the mushrooms, while stores are being warned not to sell any more.

What you should do

If you think you became sick from consuming the recalled product, contact your healthcare provider.

Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the location where they were purchased.

What to look out for

Food contaminated with listeria may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness. Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk. Although infected pregnant women may experience only mild, flu-like symptoms, the infection can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn or even stillbirth. In severe cases of illness, people may die.
