Certain unbranded $10 chicken fries are being recalled by Loblaw Companies Ltd. due to possible salmonella contamination.
The fries were sold in 1.81-kilogram packages, with a UPC code of “0 60249 01411 4.”
The product was distributed nationally, and should be thrown out or returned to the store from which it was purchased.
The recall was triggered after CFIA's investigation into a foodborne illness outbreak. They're conducting a safety investigation which could lead to the recall of other products.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning customers not to consume the recalled product.
Food that has been contaminated with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but it could still make consumers 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.
