Frozen Breaded Chicken Products Recalled

Nova Scotia’s chief public health officer, Dr. Robert Strang, is alerting the public not to eat Compliments and No Name brands of frozen uncooked breaded chicken products.

The products were recalled July 1 by Sofina Foods Inc. in collaboration with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

The products may contain harmful salmonella bacteria and are linked to an outbreak of illness in Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. The products are:

— No Name Chicken Burgers, 2 kg package, code on product 2016 JA 22 EST 374, UPC 0 60383 11695 8
— Compliments Chicken Strips, 907 g package, code on product BB/MA 2016 JA 22 EST 374, UPC 0 55742 33687 0
— Compliments Chicken Nuggets, 907 g package, BB/MA 2016 JA 22 EST 374, UPC 0 55742 33688 7

Nova Scotians who have these products are advised to throw them out.

“Nova Scotia had two cases of salmonella associated with these products in March, and both people have recovered,” said Dr. Strang. “There have been no cases since, and we are continuing to monitor the situation with our federal partners.”

Food contaminated with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections. Healthy people may experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.
