If you like chicken nuggets, make sure you don’t have a recalled brand in your freezer.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency expanded an earlier recall on chicken nuggets yesterday to include Compliments Brand Chicken Nuggets.

These are sold in Nunavut, according to information on the CFIA website.

Sofina Foods Inc. has withdrawn Compliments brand Chicken Nuggets from the marketplace, but they could still be in your home.

The food agency said you should not consume the recalled product, which were sold nationally outside Quebec.

If you think you became sick from consuming the product, you should also call your health centre.

And check to see if you have the frozen nuggets in your home.

Recalled products like these should be thrown out or returned to the store where you bought them.

Food contaminated with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick.

Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections. Healthy people may experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea.

Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.

This recall was triggered by findings by the CFIA during its investigation into an illness outbreak.

    I have heard that if food like this is well cooked it should kill
    salmonella, and be safe to eat.
    Confirm this please ?
