But you may want to think twice before you preheat the oven to heat up your favourite chicken fries.

This evening, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) ordered a recall for chicken fries from popular grocery store Loblaws.

Ten dollar packages of frozen chicken fries with the product code 2019 JN 22 should be returned to the store of purchase.

According to the CFIA, "food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick."

Symptoms of a salmonella infection include fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea.

Canadians who fear they have come in contact with salmonella should contact their physicians immediately.

The Public Health Agency of Canada has confirmed four cases of salmonella linked to these chicken fries in Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec.

Check the Public Health Agencywebsite and Canadian Food Inspection Agency website for more information.

The finding was part of a national investigation into salmonella-carrying chicken products. More releases are sure to come.

Stay tuned.
