Chicken recalled due to salmonella contamination


The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has issued an advisory regarding a recall of No Name and Compliments brands frozen, uncooked breaded chicken products, due to possible salmonella contamination.

Sofina Foods Inc. is the manufacturer of the affected No Name chicken burgers and Compliments chicken strips and chicken nuggets. The codes and best before dates are:

 

No Name Chicken Burgers 2 kg

2016 JA 22 EST 374

0 60383 11695 8

 

Compliments Chicken Strips 907 g

BB/MA 2016 JA 22 EST 374

0 55742 33687 0

 

Compliments Chicken Nuggets 907 g

BB/MA 2016 JA 22 EST 374

0 55742 33688 7

 

The CFIA said this recall was triggered by its findings during an investigation into a foodborne illness outbreak. The agency said there have been reported illnesses associated with these products.

The investigation is continuing and the CFIA said if other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated food recall warnings. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

The CFIA cautions that food contaminated with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you 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.
