Beef-deprived Canadians can now add peanut butter snacks to the list of delicious foods to be extra-cautious about.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning the public not to consume a list of peanut butter products that may contain salmonella.
They include spreads under the brand Harry & David, including crunchy almonds and peanut butter, creamy banana peanut spread, creamy caramel peanut spread, creamy raspberry peanut spread and apple snack box, which contains one of the recalled spreads.
CFIA is also warning against eating Fairytale-brand peanut butter brownies, peanut butter sprites and peanut butter cookies, as well as Justin's-brand classic peanut butter (jars) and honey peanut butter (squeeze packs).
These products are all from the U.S. and may have been distributed nationally through online sales.
Food containing salmonella may not look or smell spoiled, but it can still cause salmonellosis, a foodborne illness.
In healthy people, salmonellosis causes fever, headaches, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
For the elderly, young children or people with weakened immune systems, it can be fatal.
