OTTAWA – The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning the public not to eat some products containing peanut butter because they may be contaminated with Salmonella.
The products under the brand names Harry & David, Wolferman’s, Fairytale and Justin’s may have been sold across Canada through Internet sales from the U.S.
The products range from flavoured peanut butter spreads to gift baskets.
The CFIA says there have been no reported illnesses linked to eating these products.
Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can result in deadly infections for young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.
The products have been recalled in the United States and are listed on the CFIA website (http://www.inspection.gc.ca/english/corpaffr/recarapp/2012/20121010be.shtml).
