The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is warning that white sesame seeds sold in bulk at certain Ontario retail outlets may contain salmonella bacteria.
The seeds were sold in bulk bins at the following stores:
- Bulk Food Mart, 7205 Goreway Dr., Mississauga, from July 24 to Aug. 14.
- Great Canadian Bulk Food, 45 Overlea Blvd., Toronto, from July 11 to Aug. 14.
There have been no reported illnesses in connection with the seeds.
Consumption of food contaminated with salmonella may cause serious and even deadly infections in children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. In healthy adults, the salmonella bacteria can cause high fevers, severe headaches, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
