OTTAWA - Two brands of uncooked stuffed chicken products are being recalled due to possible salmonella contamination.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the four No Name products and four Barber Foods brands were sold across the country.
The federal agency says the recall was triggered by a recall in another unspecified country and extends to food service establishments such as hotels, restaurants, cafeterias, hospitals and nursing homes.
The CFIA says its investigation may lead to the recall of other products and notes there have been no reported illnesses as a result of eating these products.
Food contaminated with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections.
Full details about the affected products are available on the Canadian Food Inspection Agency website.
