The food recall warning issued by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency has been expanded to include certain containers of Fresh is Best salsa, which is made in Kamloops.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said onions and various products made with onions grown by Thomson International Inc. of Bakersfield, Calif., are being recalled due to possible salmonella contamination.
The CFIA said consumers should not eat the recalled products in the list that can be found here.
Retailers, distributors, manufacturers and food service establishments such as hotels, restaurants, cafeterias, hospitals and nursing homes should not serve, use or sell the recalled products.
The products may also have been purchased online or through various restaurant or convenience store locations.
The recall also includes prepared sandwiches sold at IGA, Safeway, Sobeys and Thrifty Foods states in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The recall also encompasses some prepared salads sold only in B.C.
Symptoms of salmonella include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps, which develop between six hours and seven days after exposure and usually last four to seven days, according to the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control.
Most of those afflicted recover from without treatment, but children ages five and younger, adults over the age of 65 and those with weakened immune systems are more likely to have severe illness, the centre said.
As of Aug. 7, the Public Health Agency of Canada said there are 239 confirmed cases in Canada, with 29 people hospitalized and no deaths reported.
