Health Canada Issued An Urgent Recall On Chicken Nuggets Due To Salmonella Contamination

Children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are at serious risk.
Health Canada Issued An Urgent Recall On Chicken Nuggets Due To Salmonella Contamination

For most of us, our weekend was a great time to relax and get away from the winter madness. For others, it was a time spent recovering from dangerous food poisoning. Over the weekend, Health Canada issued an urgent recall on chicken nuggets contaminated with Salmonella.

They may have been a bit too late though, as the recall was triggered by an outbreak of human illness from consuming the product.

TL;DR The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has issued a Canada-wide recall on Salmonella contaminated chicken nuggets that have already led to an illness outbreak across the country. More details below.

The brand that has been recalled across Canada is Crisp & Delicious Chicken Breast Nuggets - Uncooked Seasoned Breaded Chicken Cutlettes. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is conducting a full investigation into the recall and illnesses, meaning more product could be recalled in the future. Stay tuned for any updates or breaking news.



Salmonella contamination might not have a smell or taste, meaning it can go undetected in a food product until illness. Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and anyone with a weakened immune system is at major risk of contracting deadly infections. Those previously healthy that have been infected with salmonella may experience symptoms such as:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Diarrhea

Long-term complications may include severe arthritis. The CFIA is urging anyone who has purchased the chicken nuggets to throw them out or return them to your local retailer immediately. With the product already removed from store shelves, no new illness outbreaks should occur unless the product has already been purchased.
