National recall issued for certain No Name brand chicken burgers
A national recall has been issued for certain No Name brand chicken burgers due to possible Salmonella contamination.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) says the recall applies to burgers that come in a one kg package with the best before date of February 6, 2019.
The agency says the recalled products should not be consumed and that they should either be thrown out or returned to the store from which they were purchased.
Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled, but it can still cause sickness.
Some of the symptoms may include fever, headache, vomiting, and nausea.
The recall was triggered by findings by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency during its investigation into a foodborne illness outbreak.
The Public Health Agency of Canada says there are currently 59 cases of Salmonella Enteritidis illness in eight provinces, which includes one case in New Brunswick and 1 case in Nova Scotia.
Ten people have been hospitalized, while no deaths have been reported.
The investigation is ongoing, and the agency says it's possible more products linked to the outbreak investigation will be identified.
