Check your fridge - your kale salad could be getting recalled right now.

Eat Smart-brand kale salad has been recalled in six provinces because it could be contaminated with Listeria, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

Consumers should not consume the recalled product described below, which has been sold in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island.

Fresh Taste Produce Ltd is cautioning customers who recently purchased the 28-ounce bag of kale salad to look for the UPC code, which is 709351891403.

The agency said its test results triggered the recall, and that the agency is conducting a food safety investigation.

Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness, said the CFIA. Anyone who has eaten any of the recalled product and developed symptoms of Listeria infection should seek medical treatment and tell their doctors about the possible Listeria exposure.

In their recall warning on Tuesday, the CFIA said there has been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of the product so far.

You should also check to see if you have recalled products in your home. Later that same month, more Eat Smart Salad Shakeups were recalled for Listeria contamination - Asian Sesame and Tropical Lime.
