If you've recently stocked up on food at the grocery store, you might want to take a look at the new food recalls that have been issued by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

According to the government agency, some of the recent recalls are due to plastic, microbial contamination or undeclared allergens.

In all cases for the items listed below, the CFIA recommends that you do not "use, sell, serve or distribute the affected product."

German Frikadellen

On September 22, a notification was issued for German Frikadellen because of the presence of undeclared gluten and wheat. It does not have a brand name but is linked to Messinger Meats. For more information, you can visit the CFIA listing to see if your product is affected.

The Frikadellen was sold in Alberta.

The CFIA advises that contaminated food might not look or smell off but could still make you sick.

"Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness. Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk," they warn. "In severe cases of illness, people may die."
