Amsellem brand Solo Chorizo – Dried Beef Sausage is being recalled from the marketplace due to possible Salmonella contamination.

Consumers should not consume the recalled product described below, which has been sold in Ontario and may have been sold in other provinces and territories.


There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of this product at this time. Still, you should check to see if you have them in your home. If you do, they should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor.

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.
