TL;DR The CFIA has recalled Janes brand Pub Style Chicken Burgers across Canada for containing the salmonella bacteria. There's already been an outbreak of human illness due to the product. With the investigation into the company still ongoing, more products may be recalled in the days to come.

Becoming more popular lately is the chicken burger. Not only is this a little healthier than the former food choices, but who doesn't love chicken? These burgers are nowmade to order in restaurants and are readily available in the freezer aisle of every grocery store.

But they may about to become harder to find.

Yes, chicken burgers have officially become dangerous to eat. Why? Well, this popular brand has just confirmed their product has been contaminated with salmonella.

Janes brand Pub Style Chicken Burgers have already been recalled and are being removed from grocery stores across the country. Unfortunately, the bacteria was discovered a little too late; there's already been an outbreak of human illness.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency conducted an investigation on the patties after many complaints of illness after consuming the product. The investigation is still underway, meaning other products might also be recalled in the following days.

There are no physical signs that a food is contaminated with salmonella. Young children, pregnant women, and the elderly are at serious risk if they consume the bacteria, which can lead to deadly infections.

If you happen to have Janes Pub Style breaded chicken burgers at home with an expiry date of 2019 MA 14, you'll want to get rid of them ASAP either by returning the box to your local retailer or simply throwing it out.
