Ritz Cracker products recalled over Salmonella fears Some of the recalled Ritz products

Mars Food Canada is voluntarily recalling select Uncle Ben's rice products due to possible Salmonella contamination in the seasoning pouches.

Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased, CFIA said in a food recall warning.

The recall is due to the potential presence of Salmonella.

Ritz cracker products have been recalled across the USA due to salmonella concerns.

The affected products contain expiration dates between January 14, 2019 and April 13, 2019.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency issued two recalls Friday on Christie brand Ritz Bits Sandwiches in both cheese and pizza flavours, as well as No Name brand chicken nuggets.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems.

Symptoms include headache, fever, vomiting, abdominal cramps and diarrhea.

Consumers who have these products should not eat them, and should discard any products they may have. Consumers can contact the company at 1-844-366-1171 to get more information about the recall.
