The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has recalled Compliments brand chili powder due to fear of possible salmonella contamination.
The recall was issued after the CFIA conducted a food safety investigation, which may lead to more recalls down the road.
No illnesses have been reported yet as a result of consumption of this product, but people who have the spice on their shelves are being advised to throw it out or return it.
The CFIA advisory also warns of the following effects of Salmonella:
“Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections,” reads the statement.
“Healthy people may experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.”
