If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor.
Check to see if you have recalled products in your home. Recalled products should 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 CFIA during its investigation into a foodborne illness outbreak. The CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products.
According to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, there are 25 cases of illness in nine provinces linked to this outbreak: 12 in Ontario, one in British Columbia, three in Alberta, three in Saskatchewan, one in Manitoba, two in Quebec, one in New Brunswick, one in Prince Edward Island and one in Newfoundland and Labrador. Two individuals have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported. Frozen raw breaded chicken products have been identified as a source of this outbreak.
The CFIA is verifying that industry is removing recalled product from the marketplace.
