The Great Little Harbour Seafood Company Ltd. has issued a food recall warning for oysters triggered by Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) test results finding possible Salmonella contamination.

The recall issued due to possible contamination affects small and standard-sized oysters described as follows:

While there have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products so far, the oysters distributed in Ontario, Nova Scotia, and possibly nationally, should not be consumed.

“Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased, according to the CFIA.

Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened 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.

Consumers who think they became sick from consuming a recalled product are advised to call their doctor.
