The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has recalled several products sold at Metro locations across Ontario for possible Salmonella contamination.
In a notice posted on November 28, the CFIA listed 21 items sold by Metro that have been sold up to and on November 27.
The agency is asking those who may have purchased the items to not consume due to the possibility of the bacteria.
At this time, the CFIA has not been aware of any illnesses related to these products.
“Check to see if you have the recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased,” said the CFIA in the notice.
“Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick.”
Those highly affected, with weakened immune systems, would be young children, pregnant women and older adults. It could, at times, cause 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,” said the agency.
According to the CFIA, they are conducting a food safety investigation, which could lead to the recall of other products.
At this time, the agency is verifying that Metro is removing the recalled products from being sold.
