      Delta Pacific Seafoods has called upon consumers not to eat one of its products.

      The 150-gram packages of Hot Smoked Atlantic Salmon Nuggets–Maple are being recalled due to possible contamination by Listeria monocytogenes.

      They carry the UPC 8 28684 00108 9.

      According to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, Listeria monocytogenes will stil make people sick even if the food doesn't look or smell spoiled.

      In severe cases, this pathogenic bacteria can cause death.

      So far, there have been no reported illnesses from these packages.

      "Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness," the CFIA states on its website. "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." 

      The product is being recalled in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.
