The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is recalling Wild Sockeye Smoked Salmon and Sensations Wild Pacific Smoked Salmon following concerns that the products are contaminated with listeria.
According to a release issued by the agency on Saturday night, officials stated that the products were sold mainly in Ontario, but that there is a chance that they were distributed to other provinces.
Food contaminated with listeria may not look or smell spoiled, but the agency says it can make you sick.
- persistent fever
- muscle aches
- severe headache
- stiff neck
No illnesses have been reported in connection with the salmon products.
According to the agency, the recall was triggered by Central Epicure, the Toronto company that smokes the salmon.
A food safety investigation is being conducted, which could result in the recall of other products.
Officials are asking those who bought the salmon products to check the codes on the packaging to determine if it has been recalled.
The no-name Wild Sockeye Smoked Salmon has the code 2017SE07 and the code for the Sensations Wild Pacific Smoked Salmon is 2017MA30 and 2017JN03.
