Jimel’s Bakery in Winnipeg is recalling a long list of baked goods due to possible salmonella contamination from a rodent infestation.
The recall, which involves items sold in Manitoba, was reported Friday by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
Items include rice cakes, steamed chicken buns, brioche, white bread, and coconut buns. All units were sold until March 22. Foods contaminated with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled, but can still cause illness.
“Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems can get serious and sometimes fatal infections. Healthy people may experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Long-term complications can include severe arthritis,” the agency said in a statement.
The recall was triggered by a consumer complaint, and the agency said no illnesses associated with consuming the products had been reported.
The agency said it was conducting an investigation that could lead to the recall of other products.
