What you need to do
If you think you have become sick from consuming the recalled product, contact your doctor.
Make sure you have recalled the products to your home. Cuttings should be ejected or returned to the store where they are purchased.
Food contaminated with Salmonella can not look or smell bad, but it can still get sick. Young children, pregnant women, elderly people and people with weakened immune systems may face serious and sometimes deadly infections. Healthy people may experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.
This reminder was prompted by the findings of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) during its investigation into the epidemic of foodborne illness. CFIA conducts research on food safety, which can lead to the imposition of other products. If other high-risk products are withdrawn, CFIA will notify the public through updated feedbacks warnings.
CFIA confirms that the industry removes the recalled product from the market.
Diseases associated with the consumption of these products have been reported.
