OTTAWA -- The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is monitoring a recall of certain Ready Pac fresh cut fruit products due to possible salmonella contamination.
The Ready Pac products contain pieces of Daniella brand mangoes which were earlier recalled due to potential salmonella contamination.
Ready Pac's Fruit Tray Bien and Super Fruit Medley products are affected by the recall.
They were distributed in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan and possibly other parts of Canada.
There've been no reported illnesses linked to Ready Pac products, however, several illnesses in Canada and the U.S. have been linked to Daniella mangoes.
Salmonella poisoning can cause serious, and sometimes even deadly infections.
