What you should do
If you think you are sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor.
Check to see if you have recalled products in your home. Recalled products that should be returned to the store where they were purchased.
Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look like you can but make you sick. Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weak immune systems may contract 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 recall was triggered by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) during its investigation into a foodborne illness outbreak. The CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. If other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings.
The CFIA is verifying that industry is removing recalled products from the marketplace.
There have been reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products.
