Chicken sandwich contamination Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada

A warning has been put out about chicken sandwiches that may be contaminated with listeria bacteria. Listeria can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea, and is particularly dangerous to pregnant women. Food contaminated with listeria may not look or smell spoiled.

The sandwiches were sold in Ontario, Quebec and possibly Atlantic Canada under the name "Martel" or "La Maisonnee" and include chicken salad. The sandwiches carry a best before date of Jan. 25 and Feb. 5, 2008.
