Longo’s Recalls Possibly Contaminated Chili Peppers


Lovers of spicy food may have to pass on the peppers this time around. 

Longo's is recalling its brand of Hot Red Thai Chili Peppers due to possible Salmonella contamination, according to a recent release from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). 

The peppers in question were sold up to (and including) Wednesday, July 6. 

The recall comes shortly after another recall earlier this week for fresh chili peppers imported by Canada Herb. This product, while sold in clear plastic bags bearing the company name, may also have been sold in smaller packages without a label. 

Anyone who has purchased these peppers is advised to throw them out or return them to the store. Salmonella-contaminated food may not always look or smell spoiled, but can still make you sick upon eating it. 

No illnesses have been reported yet. The CFIA will be conducting more food safety investigations, so watch out for any more recalls to be announced.
