What you need do

If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor.

Check to see you have recalled products in your home. Recalled products must be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

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.


This recall was triggered by findings by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) during its investigation into a foodborne illness outbreak. The CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the remall of other products. If other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through the updated Food Recall Warnings.

The CFIA is verifying that industry is removing the product from the marketplace.
