The Canadian Food Inspection Agency recalled 18 more products containing peanuts on Feb. 4, and corrected the recall notice on three others.
The products are part of an expanding recall of foods that may contain peanuts contaminated by salmonella. U.S. regulators have recalled hundreds of products using peanuts supplied by Peanut Corp. of America, and the Canadian agency has recalled more than 140, including nearly 40 made in Canada. The rest are imported.
The recent additions include certain BioX bars, Titan bars, Oh Yeah! bars, Clif bars and Ocean Spray trail mix. Notices on three Oh Yeah! bars were corrected.
The recall is the result of an outbreak of salmonella in the U.S. that has sickened at least 529 people. At least eight may have died.
The CFIA said there have been no confirmed illnesses in Canada from eating the recalled products.
