Recall of food products imported from Poland because of potential salmonella contamination

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning consumers not to eat listed food products (list follows) manufactured by Winiary S. A. and imported from Poland, because they may contain Salmonella bacteria that can cause illness in humans.

Salmonellosis is a potentially life-threatening illness and young children, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk. Food contaminated with bacteria will not look or smell spoiled. Consumers should return the recalled product to the point of purchase.

Some of these food products were identified by the Polish health authorities to contain Salmonella bacteria and were recalled in Poland by the manufacturer.

These products have been imported into Canada and may have been distributed across the country. There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is monitoring the effectiveness of the recall.
