Canada: Loblaw recalls chicken fries for possible salmonella

3 October, 2018

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) said that grocery and drugstore chain Loblaw Cos Ltd was recalling certain $10 chicken fries due to Salmonella concerns. The recall was triggered by findings during an agency investigation into a foodborne illness outbreak. The four cases reported in Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec did not require hospitalization or cause death.
Canadian federal, state, and local food safety agencies have investigated 13 national outbreaks of Salmonella linked to raw chicken, including frozen raw breaded chicken products, and identified 433 confirmed cases since May last year.
