“There are now 84 Salmonella illnesses reported across five provinces. Based on the investigation findings to date, the outbreak is linked to Alasko brand frozen whole kernel corn,” according to the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC).


The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) issued food recall warnings on Dec. 14 and 9 for Alasko brand frozen whole kernel corn imported by New Alasko Limited Partnership.



Some of the products were possibly distributed nationally. This led to a secondary recall for Fraser Valley Meats brand frozen whole kernel corn on Dec. 18.


Additional food recall warnings in Canada are possible. More information on recalled products is available online. “Do not eat, use, sell, or serve any recalled Alasko brand or Fraser Valley Meats brand frozen whole kernel corn,” PHAC advises.
