Black Pepper Powder Recall
« on: March 31, 2008, 02:44:17 PM »
OTTAWA, March 26, 2008 - The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and Pak National Foods Limited are warning the public not to consume the National Black Pepper Powder described below because the product may be contaminated with Salmonella.

The affected product, National Black Pepper Powder, product of Pakistan, is sold in a 50 g package bearing UPC 6 20514 00077 0 and B.B. END MAY. 2010.

This product has been distributed in Alberta and British Columbia.

There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of this product.

Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled. Consumption of food contaminated with this bacteria may cause salmonellosis, a foodborne illness. In young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems, salmonellosis may cause serious and sometimes deadly infections. In otherwise healthy people, salmonellosis may cause short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.

The importer, Pak National Foods Limited, Richmond, British Columbia, is voluntarily recalling the affected product from the marketplace. The CFIA is monitoring the effectiveness of the recall.

For more information, consumers and industry can call the CFIA at 1-800-442-2342 / TTY 1-800-465-7735 (8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern time, Monday to Friday).

This is crazy. Is there anything we can safely consume?

Apparently nothing is considered safe anymore.  This is becoming very horrible to say the least.
