There is another widespread food recall in Canada and this time multiple brands of sesame seeds that were sold all over the country are affected.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has shared four recalls of sesame seed products from six different brands between November 16 and 19 due to possible salmonella contamination.
Tootsi brand Organic Hulled Sesame Seeds are included in the recall. The product has been sold in Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia and B.C.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is advising people to check if they have the recalled products in their homes, throw them out and not consume them.
Food contaminated with salmonella might not look or smell bad but it can still make you sick. Children, pregnant people, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems could get serious and even deadly infections.
Healthy people could experience short-term symptoms like fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea, the agency says. Long-term complications could include severe arthritis.
