The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has issued a food recall warning for Janes brand Pub Style Chicken Burgers due to possible Salmonella contamination.
The product which is sold across Canada has been linked to 25 illnesses in nine provinces – one in B.C., three in Alberta, three in Saskatchewan, one in Manitoba, 12 in Ontario, two in Quebec, one in New Brunswick, one in P.E.I., and one in Newfoundland and Labrador.
The agency said two people have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported.
The uncooked breaded chicken burgers are sold in 800 gram packages with a best before date of May 14, 2019 (UPC code 0 69299 12491 0).
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is asking anyone who has these recalled products to throw them out or return them to the store where they were purchased.
Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick.
Symptoms typically include fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea, but long-term complications can include severe arthritis.
While anyone can become infected with salmonella poisoning, infants and seniors are most at risk.
