Apio Inc., Guadalupe, Calif., is recalling Eat Smart brand Salad Shake Ups — Sweet Kale salads from Canadian retailers for possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency, which reported the recall on Dec. 4, said it was triggered by results of a test the agency conducted on the salad.

The CFIA did not report how much product is involved in the recall. No illnesses have been reported in connection to the recall.

The salad, about 5.5 ounces, has a “best before” date of Dec. 3 and a Universal Product Code of 7 09351 30243 5, according to the CDFI notice.

The salads went to retailers nationally in Canada.

“The CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products,” according to the recall notice. “If other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings.”

The CFIA is verifying that industry is removing recalled product from the marketplace, according to the agency.
