article imageCanadian oyster recall expanded due to Salmonella contamination

By Karen Graham     Sep 6, 2016 in Food
Ottawa - Atlantic Shellfish Products Inc. of Prince Edward Island is recalling four different batches of Malpeque Choice Oysters due to possible contamination with Salmonella.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) announced the recall on September 5, 2016. This is the second recall of oysters from P.E.I. companies involving contaminated oysters in the past two weeks.
The CFIA recall dated August 22 involved large standard and mixed oysters distributed by Five Star Shellfish Inc. As was the case with the first recall, CFIA is saying the latest recalled oysters were shipped to retailers, institutions and restaurants, possibly nationwide.
The CFIA notes the recall was triggered by test results and their food safety investigation may lead to additional recalls of other products. The CFIA is verifying the recalled products are being removed from the marketplace and will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings, reports CTV News.
Following is a list of the products under this recall. Consumers are asked to either throw out the products or return them to the retailer where they were purchased. Consumers are warned to not consume the oysters.
No one has reported being sick because of the recalled products, but consumers must remember that food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell bad. As with many food-borne illnesses, young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections.
