Be careful, folks.
You might want to go back and check out some of the grocery items you recently purchased because these latest recalls across Canada could just impact you.
Since mid-October, a slew of food recalls have been issued by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Several different products from onions to salami have been part of recent recalls over the past two weeks.
So be sure to check your cupboards and fridge for the items below and consider getting rid of the ones that could actually make you sick.
Charcuterie Fortin brand Salami
On October 24, the CFIA issued a recall for Charcuterie Fortin brand salami because it may contain wheat that isn't declared on the label.
"People who have an allergy to wheat or have celiac disease or other gluten-related disorders should not consume the recalled product," the CFIA said.
The affected 175 g packages of the product were sold in Quebec and will have a best before date of November 13, 2021.
Whole Raw Onions From Mexico
On October 21, the CFIA issued a large recall of whole raw red, yellow and white onions that were produced in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico, and exported by Prosource Produce LLC of Hailey, Idaho.
The CFIA said the recall was prompted due to a risk of salmonella contamination which could cause short-term illness, long-term health complications and even death.
Not long after on October 22, the CFIA expanded the recall to include Gwillimdale Farms brand onions, which were also from Mexico. They are said to have been sold in Ontario and Quebec.
Happy Veggie World brand Vege Chicken Breast
Just a few days earlier on October 15, the CFIA issued a recall on Happy Veggie World brand Vege Chicken Breast because they said the product failed to declare it contained eggs on its label.
"If you have an allergy to egg, do not consume the recalled products as they may cause a serious or life-threatening reaction," the agency said.
The item was distributed in Alberta, British Columbia and possibly nationally.
Vegefarm brand Vege Stewed Lamb Chunk
A similar recall was also issued on October 15 for Vegefarm brand Vege Stewed Lamb Chunk due to undeclared egg on its label.
"Check to see if you have the recalled products in your home," the CFIA recommended. "Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased."
The item was also distributed in Alberta, British Columbia and possibly nationally.
Canada Uncle Bill Seafood brand Dried Octopus
#CFIArecall Food Recall Warning - Allergen (Sulphites) \u2013 Canada Uncle Bill Seafood brand Dried Octopus https://ift.tt/3p3minR— Canadian Food Inspection Agency (@Canadian Food Inspection Agency) 1634241216
On October 14, the CFIA issued a recall for Canada Uncle Bill Seafood brand dried octopus with the UPC 7 70162 03866 0, due to undeclared sulphites.
The CFIA said sulphites are considered an allergen, which is what prompted the recall.
The item was distributed in Ontario.
Jongilpoom brand Enoki Mushroom
Also on October 14, a recall was issued for Jongilpoom brand Enoki Mushroom with the code CE 165D due to Listeria monocytogenes.
"Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick," according to the government agency. "Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness."
The item was distributed in Alberta, B.C., Manitoba, Ontario, Saskatchewan and possibly nationally.
