A Canada mushroom recall has been issued for a type called enoki mushrooms from the brand Golden Mushroom as of Friday, May 7. The recall is due to a potential listeria monocytogenes contamination.

So, if you bought enoki mushrooms from that brand any time on or before Friday, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency says to throw that bag out immediately or return it back to the store where you bought them.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says that while listeria won't make your food look or smell spoiled, it will still make you sick. Symptoms can range from nausea and vomiting to fever, muscle aches, headaches and neck stiffness. Pregnant women, elderly people and those with weakened immune systems are at the most risk when it comes to this warning.

According to Inside Halton, Sobeys spokesperson Karen White-Boswell said these mushrooms were sold at Safeway, Sobeys, FreshCo and Thrifty Food grocery stores all across western Canada. Spokespeople also added that apparently Longo's and Loblaws don't carry this particular product.

The CFIA says no illnesses have been reported yet from these recalled mushrooms.
