(UPDATED COVERAGE, May 29) The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has added stores to the list of retailers selling certain nuts believed to be contaminated with salmonella.
On May 23, the agency added six stores to the health alert it issued for in-shell hazelnuts (also known as filberts) sold in 38 stores in New Brunswick, Ontario and Quebec after a positive salmonella test.
In mid-May, the agency warned consumers against eating the nuts that were shipped to Canada from Hazelnut Growers of Oregon, Cornelius, and sold in 50-pound bulk bags and various sizes of packages, according to a news release.
The agency named Délices de la Forêt, St-Hubert, a Quebec distributor as importing the product that was also repacked for other distribution by Le Meilleur Enr., Montmagny, Quebec.
No illnesses have been reported.
