A brand of potato chips is being recalled due to possible salmonella contamination.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says Krinkle Cut Sour Cream & Onion Kettle Cooked Potato Chips distributed by Deep River Snacks were sold in Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario but may have also been sold nationally.

The CFIA says the Deep River, Ont.-based company based its decision on a recall in another country, but did not say which one.

The federal agency says it is conducting a food safety investigation, which it says may lead to a recall of other products.

The CFIA says the recalled chips, sold in 57-gram and 142-gram packages, should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

The chips have best-before dates of Sept. 11, 2016 up to and including Feb. 6, 2017 for the 57-gram packages and from Sept. 11, 2016 to Jan. 6, 2017 for the larger package.

Salmonella is a bacterial infection characterized by the sudden onset of headache, fever, abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea and sometimes vomiting, which usually begin six to 72 hours after consuming contaminated food or beverages.
