Turnips Sticks and Baby Cut Turnip Sticks Recalled in Canada for Possible Listeria

Sawler Gardens in Canada is recalling turnip sticks and Compliments brand Baby Cut Turnip Sticks for possible Listeria monocytogenes. The products were sold in New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and possibly nationwide. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this recall.

This additional information was obtained during the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s food safety investigation. The recalled products include Sawler brand Turnip Sticks in 340 gram packages. The code on the product is 18 FE 11, and the UPC number is 6 21063 36600 3. Also recalled is Compliments Baby Cut Turnip Sticks in 340 gram packages. The code on that product is also 18 FE 11, and the UPC number is 0 68820 12504 4.

If you purchased either of these products, do not eat them. Throw them away in a double bagged or sealed package in a secure garbage can. You can also take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Clean out your refrigerator with a solution of 1 tablespoon liquid chlorine bleach to one gallon of warm water after you throw away the product. Listeria bacteria can grow at refrigerator temperatures. Freezing does not kill it. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after you handle the product and clean.

If you ate this product, monitor yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days; that’s how long it can take for symptoms to appear. Symptoms include high fever, stiff neck, muscle aches, severe headache, vomiting, and diarrhea. Pregnant women can suffer miscarriage and stillbirth if they contract this illness, but only may be mildly ill with what seems like the flu. If you do get sick, see your doctor.
