The recalled product should be thrown out or returned to the location where it was purchased, said health department spokesperson Danarae Sommerville in a news release.
Food contaminated with the listeria monocytogenes bacteria may not look or smell spoiled, but it can still make a person sick, she said.
Symptoms can include fever, muscle aches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or constipation, stomach pain, a stiff neck or bad headache.
Anyone who thinks they may have become sick after consuming a recalled product should contact a local health centre or public health unit.
