A nationwide recall has been issued by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) for 38 different cereal and granola products sold by the popular Quaker brand in stores and online best-before dates spanning from Jan. 11 to Sept. 7, 2024.
The products in question include various flavours of the Harvest Crunch cereal, Chewy and Yogurt Granola Bars as well as Cap’n Crunch treat Bars. The CFIA is urging Canadians not to consume the products, throw them away or return them to where they were purchased.
The recall comes as the CFIA continues a food safety investigation that may lead to the recall of other products. No illnesses have been reported as a result of salmonella in Canada as of Jan. 11. Salmonella may not appear or smell spoiled, but it can still cause illness.
Salmonella can cause fever, headaches, vomiting, and diarrhea. It can also lead to long-term health problems, including severe arthritis.
