A recall has been made on a handful of products after a deadly listeria outbreak in the US.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency issued this recall on President's Choice Mexican-style Street Corn pre-packed Salads that have been found to contained listeria contamination in the cheese it used.

The salad kits are available across Canada and the United States, and the recall was first issued stateside on Monday this week.

The products affected will have a best-before date up to and including February 19th.

So far, the Listeriosis cases have only been reported in the states, but the recall is being made out of an abundance of caution.

Listeria is a bacteria that can result in listeriosis, which can manifest as fever, muscle aches, nausea, tiredness, vomiting, and diarrhea, according to the FDA. More serious symptoms can include convulsions, confusion, and loss of balance.

according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, this is a Class 1 recall, meaning it has a high risk of serious health outcomes if consumed.
