The sweet kale variety of the salad tested positive for listeria, but as a "precautionary measure," the company said it was recalling all products produced on the same day on the same production line as the sample that tested positive.

Apio Inc. said it is not aware of any illnesses linked to their products.

Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headaches, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, convulsions, diarrhea and gastrointestinal symptoms. In pregnant women, the infection can cause early delivery or miscarriage.
