Health Canada has warned that foods contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes the bacteria won’t necessarily look or smell bad, but it can still make people sick.

Symptoms of the disease include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle pain, severe headache, and neck stiffness.

The bacteria poses a higher risk to pregnant women, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems.

“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,” the recall notice states.

“In severe cases of illness, people can die.”
