Symptoms of Salmonella include fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea. Severe arthritis is a possible long-term complication.

“Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick,” Health Canada warns. “Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections.”

Residents who have this product should throw it out or return it to the store it was purchased.

Anyone who thinks they became sick from eating a recalled product is advised to contact their doctor/healthcare provider.

The affected product was sold across Canada in Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador.
