Greenbelt Microgreens recalled due to Listeria monocytogenes

Ottawa-based Greenbelt Greenhouse recalled some of its microgreens products from store shelves Aug. 25.

The two products recalled were Broccoli Microgreens, and Spicy Microgreen Mix, both sold in 75-gram packages under the Greenbelt Microgreens brand.

There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of the recalled products.

The recall was triggered by test results by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), which is now conducting a food safety investigation. If other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings.

Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still cause illness, according to 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.
