(Original story: 2 pm on Sept. 29): Various cooked and diced chicken products have been recalled from the marketplace over fears of a possible listeria contamination.

Health Canada said anyone who has bought the products should not eat them.

Restaurants and other outlets, meanwhile, have been warned not to sell the products.

The affected brands are:

  • Tip Top Poultry, Inc – Cooked Chicken Meat, Natural Proportion (½ diced) (#15332)

  • Reuven International, Ltd. – Cooked Chicken Meat, Natural Proportion (½ diced) (#16307)

  • Reuven International, Ltd. – Mostly Dark Cooked Chicken Meat (Diced) (#18307)

  • Reuven International, Ltd. – Mostly Dark Cooked Chicken Meat (Diced) (#18507)

  • Sysco – ½ Mostly Dark Cooked Diced Chicken (#18385)

  • AlimPlus Inc. – Cooked Diced Chicken Meat – 13 mm – ½" (#16338)

Health Canada warned anyone who becomes ill after eating one of the recalled products to see their doctor.

“Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness,” the agency explained.

“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.”

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency, which triggered the recall, is conducting a food safety investigation into the chicken.

It may lead to other recalls, Health Canada said.
