food recall
(Canadian Food Inspection Agency)

One day after the Canada Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) issued two recalls for chicken nuggets and Ritz Bitz sandwiches, Loblaw Companies Limited has issued another food recall due to potential salmonella contamination—this time for $10 chicken fries.

The recall applies to 1.81 kilogram packages with the product code “2019 MR 23.”

There have been no reported illnesses associated with the product. The CFIA says that recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

Food contaminated with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled, but can still cause illness. Symptoms of salmonella often occur six to 72 hours after exposure to or consumption of the contaminated product, and can include fever, diarrhea, headache, nausea, and vomiting.

Infants, children, seniors, and those with weakened immune systems are at the most risk of contracting the illness, but anyone is susceptible to it.

If you think you’ve gotten sick from eating the recalled product, call your doctor.
