California E. coli Walnuts Recalled in Canada – Again

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Johnvince Foods announced a recall on Thursday of some President’s Choice and Reddi Snack walnuts because the products may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7.  The raw, shelled walnuts products were imported from the U.S. and packaged in Canada, the CFIA said.  The products were distributed across Canada.

“There have been no confirmed illnesses associated with the consumption of these products,” the agency said in a release.

Johnvince Foods of Downsview, Ont. is voluntarily recalling the affected products from the marketplace and CFIA is monitoring the effectiveness of the recall.

In another walnut recall in January, one person in Quebec died and 13 other Canadians fell sick with an E. coli bacterial infection with the same genetic fingerprint. Of the 14 reported cases of E. coli infection, nine people consumed walnuts and seven ate walnuts from the same distributor, the Public Health Agency of Canada said at the time.
