The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says that Maple Leaf Foods Inc. is recalling certain breaded chicken products because they may have a toxin produced by Staphylococcus bacteria.
The products, which were sold in Ontario and Quebec, include Chicken burgers under the Sufra Halal and Mina Halal brand names in 828 gram packages as well as Maple Leaf brand Chicken Breast Strips in 840 gram packages with a best-before date of April 20, 2018.
The CFIA says food contaminated with Staphylococcus toxin may not look or smell bad and that the toxin produced by the bacteria is not easily destroyed at normal cooking temperatures.
Symptoms of Staphylococcus poisoning include nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramping and fever.
The CFIA says that if you suspect you have any of these products to throw them out or return them to the store where bought.
So far, there have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products.
