TORONTO – Many metro brand products are being recalled in Ontario due to salmonella pollution.
Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) These products include units sold throughout Ontario until November 27th.
More than 20 affected products that Metro Ontario Inc. recalls include salmon tornadoes, tropical green juice, spinach-fruit salad with nuts and rainbow trout stuffed with vegetables and cheese.
If you become ill without eating one of the products you remember, CFIA advises you to consult a doctor.
“Food contaminated with salmonella may not look spoiled or make you sick,” the agency said in a news release.
Salmonella can lead to fatal infections, especially in young children, pregnant women, seniors and those with compromised immunity.
However, healthy people may experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea, the agency said. Chronic complications can include severe arthritis.
The CFIA is advising Antarians who have recently shopped in the metro area to check if they remember the products in their home. If such products are found, they should be discarded or returned to the store where they were purchased, the agency said.
Metro Ontario Inc. The recall prompted the CFIA to say that illnesses associated with the consumption of the affected products had not been reported to the agency.
CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation as a result of the recall, which could lead to recalls of other products, they said.
“If other high-risk products are recalled, CFIA will notify the public through updated food recall alerts,” the agency said.
