Health Canada has certainly been keeping busy when it comes to food recalls lately.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has now listed a handful of food items that have been removed from store shelves for various reasons, one of which is due to microbial contamination from spoilage and mould.

The federal department is urging the public to check if they have purchased any of the affected products. If so, it's important to not consume, sell or distribute the recalled items.

Health Canada has stated the public should toss the items in the trash or return them to the point of sale.

Here are the recalled food items to look out for:
