- Do not consume recalled products.
- Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to where they were purchased.
According to Health Canada, Noroviruses cause gastroenteritis – an illness that typically includes diarrhea and vomiting.
Foodborne outbreaks of norovirus happen when food is contaminated either by handlers who have the virus or when food is contaminated at their source before harvested.
