While some of us might be slowing down at work in preparation for the holidays, it seems that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has been busy.

We’re wrapping up just a handful of recent food recalls that consumers should be aware of.

You can learn more about these recalls on the CIFA Recalls and Safety Alerts website and sign up to get all recall notices like this by following CFIA.

CFIA says that “Phoenicia Group Inc. is recalling Aoun brand Tahineh from the marketplace due to possible Salmonella contamination.”

If you bought it, do not eat it. You can throw it out or return it for a refund where you bought it. Call your doctor if you think you got sick from eating recalled products.
