Health Canada Recalls: No Name and Compliments Frozen Uncooked Breaded Chicken Products Recalled Due to Salmonella



Last week, the Public Health Agency of Canada issued a notice regarding the risk of Salmonella in frozen uncooked breaded products. After an investigation, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency has now issued a recall on specific brands of frozen breaded chicken products after several people reported illnesses due to Salmonella poisoning.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says several lots of No Name and Compliments brand frozen uncooked chicken strips, burgers, and nuggets sold across the country are being recalled due to possible Salmonella. All the recalled products are made by Sofina Foods Inc.

Loblaws says the products have been removed from store shelves. Both Loblaws and Health Canada advise that if you have the affected product in your home that you do not consume it, and instead throw it out, or return it to the store you purchased it.

Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled. Symptoms of a Salmonella infection start 6 to 72 hours after exposure to Salmonella bacteria from an infected animal or contaminated product and include vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps, fever and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis. Salmonellosis can be deadly to young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. Salmonella and other harmful bacterias can normally be killed through proper cooking. It’s advised that you never microwave frozen meat products and instead follow the instructions on the packaging.
