It’s important to pay attention to the warning by Health Canada that food contaminated with Salmonella does not always look or smell spoiled, but it can still make you sick.

Be aware of short-term symptoms of contamination including diarrhea, abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, headache, and fever. These symptoms can affect people of all ages. People with weakened immune systems, the elderly, pregnant women, and young children are particularly vulnerable to the risk of contamination.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is performing a food safety investigation, as the initial recall started in another country. This investigation could lead to the recall of other products, so stay tuned.
