The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is recalling a brand of frozen corn due to possible salmonella contamination.

Eagle Brand frozen corn, a product from Gentro Foods Inc., should not be eaten, served, sold or distributed, the agency said in an advisory Tuesday.

The recalled corn comes in bags of 1.75 kilograms with a best before date of Feb. 1, 2025.

The product is being recalled due to possible salmonella contamination, the CFIA said.

"Food contaminated with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick," the agency warned.

This comes after several other recalls by the CFIA due to possible salmonella contamination, including dozens of Quaker products and cantaloupes.

Young children, pregnant women, older adults and people with weakened immune systems may have "serious" infections if they come in contact with salmonella, the CFIA said.

The products are known to have been distributed in Ontario, but the recall warned they may have been sold in other provinces and territories as well.

The CFIA triggered the recall after conducting a test. No associated illnesses have been reported, it said.

Other products could be recalled after the CFIA completes its safety investigations.
