Salmonella and Peanut Product Recall

A wide range of peanut and peanut-containing products are being recalled because of possible contamination with Salmonella Typhimurium bacteria. To date, no cases of illness in Canada have been associated with these products. Salmonella can cause serious illness and even death, particularly in vulnerable populations including small children, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems.

The affected peanut ingredients originate from an American company, but many products available in Canada are implicated. The CFIA is conducting ongoing investigations in Canada and issuing frequent advisories.

Lists of recalled products are available from the CFIA and United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Since the lists are being updated regularly, we encourage you to register for the CFIA food recall subscription service.

Through this link, you will be invited to subscribe to the CFIA automatic food recall update service where you will receive food recalls and allergy alerts directly via e-mail the moment they are issued.

For more information about food safety and food-related illness, please visit the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) website.
