Packaged salads have been recalled over salmonella fears, while a peanut butter recall from earlier this week has expanded to include Starbucks-brand products.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning Canadians not to eat Justin's-brand honey peanut butter, which can be found in Starbucks protein bistro boxes.
Starbucks voluntarily recalled the boxes, which contain 0.5 oz pouches of the potentially tainted peanut butter, along with several other peanut butter products.
CFIA is also warning Canadians to avoid Fresh Express Hearts of Romaine salad over salmonella fears.
Other peanut butter products to avoid are Harry & David's-brand crunchy almonds and peanut butter, creamy banana peanut spread, creamy caramel peanut spread, creamy raspberry peanut spread and apple snack box; 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).
The potentially tainted Harry & David spreads can be found in Wolferman's-brand bee sweet gift baskets, heart sack gift baskets, all-day assortment gift baskets and Father's Day gift baskets.
There have been no reported illnesses with any of the recalled products.
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.
The recall comes on the heels of a fast-expanding major Canadian recall of E. coli-tainted beef from Alberta, as well as a recall of U.S.-made Kellogg's Mini-Wheats that may contain fragments of metal from a faulty manufacturing machine.
Concerned citizens can call CFIA at 1-800-442-2342 or 1-800-465-773.
