Five Star Shellfish Inc. is recalling oysters from Canadian retailers because of possible Salmonella contamination.

The Prince Edward Island company distributed the Five Star branded oysters to retailers in Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario, according to the recall notice posted by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. There is a possibility the oysters were distributed to other provinces.

“Consumers should not consume the recalled products. Check to see if you have recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.”

No illnesses had been reported as of Monday, according to the recall notice. Anyone who has already eaten the oysters and developed symptoms of Salmonella infection should consult with a doctor.

Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick, the CFIA notice warns. 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.
