Canada's food watchdog is monitoring a recall of packaged sesame seeds possibly contaminated with salmonella bacteria.
The sesame seeds were sold at various Ottawa and Montreal retailers. Consumers should check the Canadian Food Inspection Agency's advisory notice for product codes and store information.
No associated illnesses have been reported.
Food tainted with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled, but the bacteria can cause symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
No associated illnesses have been reported in Canada but there have been several incidents reported in the U.S.
The CFIA is monitoring the effectiveness of the recall.
Consumers with questions can call the CFIA at 1-800-442-2342.
