In young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems, salmonellosis may cause serious and sometimes deadly infections. In otherwise healthy people, salmonellosis may cause short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.

The CFIA is working with Canadian importers, distributors, and retailers to recall all affected products from the marketplace. The CFIA is monitoring the effectiveness of the recall.
