Canadian agency posts recall of king oyster mushrooms because of Listeria

Kam Ding Investment Ltd. is recalling King Oyster Mushrooms sold under the TWA Fungi brand because of possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

The recall comes after the Canadian Food Inspection Agency tested a sample of the mushrooms and found the pathogen.

The agency is recommending that consumers and businesses do not use, sell, serve, or distribute the recalled mushrooms.

Consumers can identify the recalled mushrooms by looking for the following label information:

Brand Product Size UPC Codes
TWA Fungi King Oyster Mushroom 200 g 6 957937 480051 All units sold up to and including July 01, 2022

About Listeria infections
Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still cause serious and sometimes life-threatening infections. Anyone who has eaten any recalledmushrooms and developed symptoms of Listeria infection should seek medical treatment and tell their doctors about the possible Listeria exposure.

Also, anyone who has eaten any of the recalled products should monitor themselves for symptoms during the coming weeks because it can take up to 70 days after exposure to Listeria for symptoms of listeriosis to develop. 

Symptoms of Listeria infection can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache, and neck stiffness. Specific laboratory tests are required to diagnose Listeria infections, which can mimic other illnesses. 

Pregnant women, the elderly, young children, and people such as cancer patients who have weakened immune systems are particularly at risk of serious illnesses, life-threatening infections, and other complications. Although infected pregnant women may experience only mild, flu-like symptoms, their infections can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn, or even stillbirth.
