Potentially Dangerous Seafood Products Being Recalled from Mississauga Store

in

If you've bought seafood products from a Mississauga grocery store lately then you might want to toss or return the items.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) announced an updated recall on Thursday night (May 17) due to Clostridium botulinum, which could cause bacteria to grow on food.

Four Seasons Marketplace - located at 4099 Erin Mills Pkwy., at Folkway Dr. - is recalling certain smoked fish products because they may permit the growth of Clostridium botulinum.

The following products have been sold from Four Seasons Marketplace:



Check to see if you have recalled products in your home, the CFIA advises. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.




Food contaminated with Clostridium botulinum toxin may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick, according to the CFIA.

Symptoms in adults can include facial paralysis or loss of facial expression, unreactive or fixed pupils, difficulty swallowing, drooping eyelids, blurred or double vision, difficulty speaking, including slurred speech, and a change in sound of voice, including hoarseness.

In children, symptoms of foodborne botulism can include difficulty swallowing, slurred speech, generalized weakness and paralysis.

In all cases, botulism doesn’t cause a fever. In severe cases of illness, people may die.

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