The update was triggered by recalls in the US from Prosource Produce LLC of Hailey, Idaho and by Keeler Family Farms of Deming, New Mexico.

In the past few days, there have been three recalls of onions from Mexico.

Health Canada warns that although food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled, it can still make you sick.

Short-term symptoms can include fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, cramps, and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.
