Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but it 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.
This recall was triggered by test results. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is conducting a food safety investigation, which could lead to further product recalls. If other high-risk products are recalled, the public will be notified through updated Food Recall Warnings.
