The CFIA says no illnesses have been reported related to the recalled spinach.
“Food contaminated with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick,” says the alert. “Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections.”
Symptoms may include fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.
The 142-gram and 312-gram products with best before dates of December 4 and 5 have been recalled, as detailed below.
The agency is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. The CFIA will post any other high-risk recalls.
