This recall was triggered by Canadian Food Inspection Agency test results. A food safety investigation is being conducted, which may lead to the recall of more items. If this happens, the public will be notified through notices posted at the CFIA web site.

If you bought the product, do not eat it, even if you  plan to cook it first, since the possibility of cross-contamination exists. You can throw the mushrooms away after first double bagging them, into a secure garbage can with a tight lid. Or you can take them back to the store where you purchased them for a refund.

You should then clean out your refrigerator with a mild bleach solution to kill any bacteria. Listeria monocytogenes can grow at refrigerator temperature sand freezing doesn’t destroy it. Wash your hands well with soap and water after cleaning and after handling this item.

If you ate any of the recalled enoki mushrooms, watch yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. Symptoms can include high fever, stiff neck, severe headache, muscle aches, nausea, and diarrhea.
