A food recall warning issued on June 13 has been expanded to include additional products made from chia seeds that have been distributed nationally.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) says these additional products were identified during its food safety investigation.
Advantage Health Matters is recalling Organic Traditions brand Sprouted Chia & Flax Seed Powder from the marketplace due to possible Salmonella contamination.
Consumers should not consume the recalled products described as Sprouted Chia & Flax Seed Powder in 227 and 454 gram packages, with UPC 8 54260 00621 6 and 8 54260 00621 6.
Other codes on the packages are AHM353030, AHMMIX353030, AHM310291, AHMMIX310291, AHM353030, AHMMIX353030, AHM310291 and AHMMIX310291.
The CFIA is advising consumers to check to see if they have the recalled products in their homes. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.
Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. The CFIA says young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections. Healthy people may experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.
