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.
