The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is currently conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products.
The CFIA notes that food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. In addition, 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.
