Several egg products recalled in Quebec over Salmonella risk
A selection of recalled egg products.
Les Oeufs Richard Eggs Inc. is recalling several egg products which may be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria.
Food contaminated with Salmonella does not always look or smell spoiled, but it can still make you sick.
Symptoms can be fatal for people with weakened immune systems.
Even for people with strong immunity, Salmonella poisoning can induce fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.
Salmonellosis can also cause long-term complications, including a severe form of arthritis.
Only products with the ‘best before’ dates listed below are affected by the recall. Affected products have ‘lot code’ Q29 printed on them. Packages without any listed lot codes have also been recalled.
