Burnaby company Golden Boy Foods Ltd. is voluntarily recalling its Golden Boy brand in-shell mixed nuts because they may be contaminated with salmonella.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency put out a warning this week to the public to avoid the product sold in 1.36 kg (3 lb) mesh bags with UPC code 0 64684 10948 0. The nuts are sold in B.C. at Extra Foods, No Frills, Real Canadian Wholesale Club, Shop Easy/SuperValu, Superstore, Westfair and Your Independent Grocer.
There have been no reported illnesses associated with this product, but the food agency warns of the potential for salmonellosis, a food-borne illness that can cause serious and sometimes deadly infections in young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.
