The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is warning the public not to consume the foods described below because these products may be contaminated with salmonella.
These foods contain dry powder and paste Hydrolysed Vegetable Protein (HVP) ingredients which have been recalled in the U.S. and Canada by Basic Food Flavors Inc. due to salmonella contamination.
This is an ongoing food safety investigation.
The CFIA is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to identify and remove all affected products imported into Canada from the U.S. The CFIA is also working with Canadian manufacturers to recall foods containing affected HVP ingredients. As more products are identified, the CFIA will continue to update its list of recalled products.
The following foods, manufactured in Canada, are affected by this alert:
Family's Best Smokey Bacon Various Potato Chips; No Name Onion Recipe and Soup Mix (4 pouches, 40 g each); No Name Cream of Leek Soup Mix; Compliments Onion Soup Mix.
The following food, manufactured in the U.S., is affected by this alert:

These products may have been distributed nationally.

There have been no reported illnesses in Canada associated with the consumption of these products.
Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled. Consumption of food contaminated with these bacteria may cause salmonellosis, a food borne illness. In young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems, salmonellosis may cause serious and sometimes deadly infections. In otherwise healthy people, salmonellosis may cause short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.
For more information consumers and industry can call the CFIA at 1-800-442-2342 / TTY 1-800-465-7735 (8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern time, Monday to Friday).
