If you recently stocked up on grocery items, you'll want to take a look at some of the latest food recalls issued by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

From the end of June to the beginning of July, the government agency has posted notifications for products that pose hazards in the form of undeclared allergens, listeria contamination and the presence of plastic.

In some cases, the government recommends that you do not "consume, use, sell, serve, or distribute recalled products" and in the instances where allergens are present, not to consume the product if you have a sensitivity to it.

The affected product was sold in B.C. and has a UPC of 6 957937 480051 and includes all units sold up to and including July 1.

If you think you have become ill after eating the recalled mushrooms, the government agency advises you to contact a healthcare professional.

"Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick," says the CFIA.

"Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness. Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk."
