The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is recalling No Name and Compliments chicken burgers over salmonella concerns. Compliments chicken strips and chicken nuggets are also being recalled.
The frozen, uncooked breaded chicken products were distributed by Sofina Foods Inc. and sold nationally. Earlier, Loblaws issued a recall of its No Name brand chicken burgers which were sold in Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador.
The food affected has a best before date of January 22, 2016.
The Compliments brand products were sold nationally.
The No Name burgers were sold at:
- Ontario: Fortinos, Loblaws, No Frills, Box by No Frills, Real Canadian Superstore, Valu-Mart, Your Independent Grocer, Zehrs, and affiliated independent stores
- N.S., N.L.: Atlantic Superstore, Dominion, No Frills, Save Easy and Your Independent Grocer
- Quebec: Loblaws, Maxi, Maxi & Cie, Provigo®, Provigo le Marché, Intermarché, Wholesale Club, and affiliated independent stores
Loblaws says all of the affected burgers have since been removed from stores. Loblaws also apologized, adding that customers can return the affected products for a full refund.
The food inspection agency says food contaminated with salmonella might not look or smell spoiled, but can still cause illness.
