2 Ontario food products recalled due to botulism, salmonella concerns

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has issued two recalls affecting products sold in Ontario.

In one case, Elite Salads International is recalling its White Fish product “because it may permit the growth of Clostridium botulinum,” the food inspection agency said in a release.

The product, which is manufactured by the Thornhill, Ont., company, is sold in 200-gram packages with a best-before date of March 15.

The second recall affects certain Mountainoak Cheese Ltd. brand Farmstead Premium Dutch Semi-soft cheese products, which are being taken off shelves because of possible salmonella contamination.

The company, which operates out of New Hamburg, Ont., sold one product to restaurants, while the smoked cheese was available at retail stores from Jan. 20 to Feb. 10.

No illnesses have been reported in either case.

The CFIA said the products should not be consumed, thrown out or returned to the store.

Food contaminated with Clostridium botulinum or salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still cause illness.
