The Canadian Food Inspection Agency issued a fool recall warning for a red chili ingredient included in certain meal kits, which were recalled due to salmonella.
Hello Fresh Canada Inc. is recalling the red chili ingredient included in certain Hello Fresh brand and Chefs Plate brand meal kits from the marketplace due to possible salmonella contamination of that ingredient.
Consumers should not consume the following recalled products:
Anyone who thinks they may have become sick from consuming a recalled product should call their doctor.
Members of the public should check to see if they have recalled products in their homes. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.
Food contaminated with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make the consumer sick. Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections. Healthy people may experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.
This recall was triggered by the company. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. If other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated food recall warnings.
The CFIA is verifying that industry is removing recalled product from the marketplace.
There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products.
