Some combo meals sold by Save-On-Foods have been recalled due to possible Salmonella contamination.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) issued a notice on December 31 advising that Save-On-Foods is recalling four of its combo meals sold in British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.
The recall followed CFIA inspections. There have not yet been any reported illnesses as a result of consuming the products listed below. Other products could still be recalled.
The recalled refrigerated meals are honey-garlic chicken, lemon chicken, ginger beef, and sweet-and-sour pork.
Foods that are contaminated with Salmonella, a genus of bacteria with two species, do not necessarily have a distinctive or "off" appearance or odour, so consumers may not realize its presence. However, it can still make you very sick.
Young children and seniors, along with pregnant women and those with compromised immune systems, can become very ill as a result of consuming Salmonella-contaminated foods. Occasionally, such illnesses can be fatal.
Otherwise healthy people may experience fever, headache, cramps, nausea, diarrhea, and/or vomiting.
All the 450-gram combo meals were packaged on December 27, 28, and 29, 2021, and have best-before dates of December 31, 2021, and January 1 and 2, 2022, respectively.

People who have bought these products are advised to not consume them and to throw them out or return them to the point of purchase.
The CFIA also advises that if you think you have consumed one of these products and are feeling sick, you should see a doctor.
