Spice-loving Sobeys shoppers, take note: store-brand Compliments chili powder sold across Canada is being recalled due to possible Salmonella contamination.
Check your spice cabinet because according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), products with the UPC code 0 55742 35921 3 should not be consumed.
Produced by La Cie McCormick Canada, the recalled product has been sold nationally. And while there have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of this product, the recall was triggered by CFIA test results.
Consumers are advised to throw out or return recalled products to the store.
According to the CFIA, “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. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.”
