What do you have to do
If you think you have become ill from consuming a recalled product, contact your doctor.
Check to see if you have attracted products in your home. Drawn products must be disposed of or returned to the store where they were purchased.
Contaminated food Salmonella may not be visible or foul but can still make you sick. Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems can be seriously infected and sometimes deadly. 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 withdrawal was triggered by findings by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) during its investigation of foodborne disease outbreaks. CFIA conducts food safety investigations, which can lead to the withdrawal of other products. If other high-risk products are withdrawn, CFIA will notify the public through an updated Food Withdrawal Warning.
CFIA is verifying that the industry is removing products drawn from the market.
Diseases related to consumption of these products have been reported.
