Possible salmonella contamination spurs chicken nugget recall
Health Canada, along with Loblaws, has issued a recall alert for President's Choice brand Pub Recipe Chicken Nuggets due to possible Salmonella contamination. Although there have been no reported illnesses associated with the product, the recall was triggered by a Canadian Food Inspection Agency's investigation into a food borne illness outbreak. The agency says the investigation may lead to the recall of other products.
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.
Health Canada advises anyone who has purchased the 800 gram package of Presidents Choice Pub recipe Chicken nuggets with the expiry date Mar nth, 2018 not to consume them. And to call your doctor if you did eat them and think they made you sick.
