The Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Sobeys Inc. have issued a health warning over an Edmonton store-made Tropical Fruit Salad product that may be contaminated with Salmonella Braenderup bacteria.
The affected Tropical Fruit Salad, 16oz. in size, may contain Daniella-brand mangoes as an ingredient. It was sold only at Southbrook Sobeys at 1109 James Mowatt Trail in Edmonton on or before August 29.
There have been no reported illnesses associated with consuming the Tropical Fruit Salad.
Consuming food contaminated with salmonella braenderup bacteria may cause salmonellosis, a foodbourne illness.
Salmonellosis may cause serious and sometimes deadly infections for young children, the elderly or people with weakened immune systems.
The CFIA says short-term symptoms for otherwise healthy people may include high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
Sobeys Inc. is voluntarily recalling the affected salad.
Consumers can call 1-888-476-2397 or 1-800-442-2342 for more information.
