The burgers have a best before date of May 12, 2018 while the popcorn chicken’s best before date is and May 15, 2018. Both were sold in the 800-gram size.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) says recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.
“This recall was triggered by findings by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) during its investigation into a foodborne illness outbreak,” said the CFIA in a statement.“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.”
Last month Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) issued a warning to residents in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, regarding salmonella cases linked to frozen raw breaded chicken products.
The outbreak is a reminder that frozen raw breaded chicken products contain raw poultry and should be handled properly.
Follow cooking instructions carefully and verify the internal temperature after cooking, as recommended, before consuming these products. Frozen raw breaded chicken products must be cooked to an internal temperature of at least 74°C (165°F) to ensure they are safe to eat.
