Recall On Certain No Name Chicken Nuggets Issued

Have you recently bought frozen chicken nuggets? You may want to check the package.

Loblaw Companies Ltd. is recalling certain No Name Chicken Nuggets from the marketplace due to possible salmonella contamination. The affected product includes 907g boxes of No Name Chicken Nuggets with the best before date of May 15, 2019.

The recall was triggered due to findings by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) during its investigation into a food-borne illness outbreak. The CFIA is currently conducting a food safety investigation and verifying that industry is removing the recalled product from the marketplace.

According to Health Canada, food contaminated with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled, but can still make you sick. Young children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections. Healthy people may experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.

If you think you became sick from consuming the recalled product, call your doctor. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.
