The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has recalled a brand of alfalfa sprouts due to a possible salmonella contamination.
Aquafuchsia Salad Plus: Alfalfa with a touch of radish is the product in question. Consumers should not eat it. The item should be thrown out or returned to the store where it was bought.
Salmonella-tainted food does not look or smell bad but can still cause illness. Most at risk are small children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems who may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections. Healthy people may experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea.
