Reported illnesses prompts recall of Maple Leaf Foods chicken strips

CityNews | posted Thursday, Nov 2nd, 2017

Maple Leaf Foods has recalled a brand of frozen chicken strips because they may contain the toxin produced by staphylococcus bacteria.

The chicken breast strips were sold in 840-gram packages with a best before date of Sept. 29, 2018.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says illnesses have been reported but did not provide further details.

The agency says the recall was triggered by a consumer complaint, and that more products may be pulled from stores depending on the results of a food safety investigation.

Food contaminated with the bacteria may not look or smell spoiled. Symptoms of staphylococcus poisoning include nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramping and fever.
