A brand of Pepperidge Farm Goldfish crackers is being recalled due to salmonella contamination.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said the Goldfish Flavour Blasted Xtreme Cheddar Crackers sold in both 180-gram and 69-gram packages are being recalled.

The larger packages bear product codes listing several dates for January and February 2018, while the smaller packages display dates for January 2018 only.

The CFIA said the recall, initiated by the Campbell Company of Canada, was triggered by a similar action taken in another country. The federal agency said there have been no reported illnesses linked to eating these products, which should be thrown out or returned to the store where purchased.

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 have short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea.
