CFIA adds to list of salmonella-affected recalls

The five products contain peanut products (butter, paste, or pieces) made by the Peanut Corporation of America. These products have already been recalled in the U.S. and Canada due to contamination, the CFIA said.

U.S. and Canadian authorities have already recalled a lengthy list of products thought to be tainted with salmonella. The products in the latest recall are a line of 75g Promax-brand energy bars, listed below.

  • Promax Energy Bar - Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (best before date on or before Jan. 20, 2010).
  • Promax Energy Bar - Chocolate Mint (best before date on or before Jan. 15, 2009).
  • Promax Energy Bar - Chocolate Peanut Crunch (best before between June 10, 2008 and Dec. 26, 2008).
  • Promax Energy Bar - Honey Peanut (best before date between July 30, 2008, and Dec. 9, 2008).
  • Promax Energy Bar - Nutty Butter Crisp (best before date between May 30, 2008, and Jan. 15, 2009).

The CFIA says the products may have been distributed nationally, and that it is working with Canadian manufacturers to recall the affected products.
