Gordon Food Service is recalling various Gordon Choice brand diced frozen chicken products from the marketplace due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
The products were distributed in Alberta, British Columbia, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Saskatchewan and the Yukon.
This recall was triggered by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s (CFIA) surveillance activities following an investigation into a foodborne illness outbreak. The CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products.

If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor.
Check to see if you have the recalled products in your establishment. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the location where they were purchased.
Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. 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. 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. In severe cases of illness, people may die.
