    OTTAWA – The canadian food inspection agency (CFIA) conducts a recall of some sesame seeds, because these products may have been contaminated by the bacterium Salmonella.

    The products affected by the recall have been sold in Ontario.

    It is a matter of: “Sesame Seeds White”, of the company ARZ Fine Foods, located in Toronto, in the format of 1 lb (CODE: PACKED ON 18.JA.09 – CUP: 2 25166000569 2);

    “Sesame seeds”, sold in bulk until January 23, 2018, inclusive, by the company’s Bulk Food Stop in Scarborough.

    Meals prepared in “Toasted Brown Rice Bowl”, the brand of “HelloFresh”, are also affected by the recall, as they may contain sesame seeds contaminated. These meals sold on the Internet in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan have been delivered in the 9 and 10 January last.

    The CFIA said in a press release that the food contaminated by the bacterium Salmonella can cause several health problems, including fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.
