Sobeys Inc. has recalled a product from its shelves due to possible salmonella contamination.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) announced Sobeys and Foodland brand Asian Vegetable Mix (starting with UPC 208066) was recalled on Wednesday, March 11.
"This recall was triggered by test results," the CFIA said in its recall warning. "The CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. If other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated food recall warnings."
No illnesses associated with consumption of the products have been reported yet.
The CFIA warns food contaminated with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled, but can still make you sick. Short-term symptoms include fever, vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, headaches and abdominal cramps.
Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are at a greater risk of becoming sick and possibly contracting serious and sometimes deadly infections.
