Food recalls due to Cronobacter

The Department of Health is warning about a food recall issued by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) due to possible Cronobacter sakazakii contamination.

Food contaminated with Cronobacter may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Although Cronobacter is not commonly linked to human illness, in rare cases it can cause serious or fatal infections. Cronobacter can cause rare bloodstream and central nervous system infections and has been associated with severe intestinal infection (necrotizing enterocolitis) and blood poisoning (sepsis), especially in newborns.

Information on this product recall can be found on the CFIA website here.
