Rosemount chicken sickened seven

Rosemount diced chicken sickened seven Canadians, six of them so sick they needed a stay in hospitals.

Five were in Ontario and one each in British Columbia and Mantitoba.
Listeria is the food-poisoning bacteria at issue in the product from the company in Waterloo, Ont.

The Public Health Agency of Canada said people who have some of this product in their household should put it in a plastic bag, discard it and thoroughly wash their hands.

The illnesses occurred between November, 2017, and this June.

The illnesses were linked to Rosemount diced chicken by DNA analyses.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is supervising a recall that includes hotels, restaurants and cafeterias.
