The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has been warning consumers all week about a new basil recall and, today, more products were added to the growing list.
Health Officials warn consumers that the products affected by the recall could be contaminated with salmonella. Consumption of Salmonella can cause salmonellosis – a potentially fatal foodborne illness. This particular illness is especially dangerous for children, pregnant women, elderly individuals and those with weakened immune systems.
