There’s a pair of food recalls due to possible salmonella contamination.

Loblaw Companies Ltd. is recalling certain No Name brand Chicken Nuggets and unbranded $10 Chicken Fries.

The nuggets were sold in 907 gram packages with a best before date of 2019 MA 15 and a UPC code 0 60383 89685 0 while the fries were sold in 1.81-kilogram packages with a best before date of 2019 MR 23 and a UPC code 0 60249 01411 4.

Both products were distributed nationally, and should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says there have been at least seven reported illnesses, including one hospitalization, associated with the products.

The agency says the cases were reported in B.C., Alberta and Ontario.

Meanwhile, Mondelēz Canada is recalling Christie brand Ritz Bits Sandwiches, both cheese and pizza flavours.

The items in question were sold in 180 g, 42 g, 30 x 42 g and 180 g snak paks with the following UPC codes: 0 66721 00216 7, 0 66721 00556 4, 0 66721 00609 7, 0 66721 00608 0, 0 66721 01623 2

There have been no reported illnesses and the recall was prompted due to a recall in another country.

Symptoms of salmonella poisoning often include fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea.

Long-term complications can also include severe arthritis.
