Janes brand Pub Style Chicken Burgers have been recalled from the marketplace because of possible salmonella contamination, says the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
Consumers should not consume the chicken burgers, which come in 800-gram packages with a best-before date of May 14, 2019. The UPC code is 0 69299 12491 0.
The recalled products, which were sold across the country, should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.
Other products may be recalled
In its recall warning, the CFIA said salmonella investigations led by the Public Health Agency of Canada have linked frozen raw breaded chicken products to 25 illnesses in nine provinces — one in B.C., three in Alberta, three in Saskatchewan, one in Manitoba, 12 in Ontario, two in Quebec, one in New Brunswick, one in P.E.I., and one in Newfoundland and Labrador.
It says two people have been hospitalized, though no deaths have been reported.
The agency did not say whether any of the illness were directly related to the products being recalled. It is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products.
Food contaminated with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick, the CFIA said.
