7 Food Items That Have Been Recalled By Health Canada – So You Might Want To Check Your Fridge ASAP

It seems as if Health Canada is working overtime flagging down countless questionable foods sold throughout the country.

While bagged salad kits, several chocolate brands, and even smoothie products have all been recalled by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, it seems as if there are more food recalls being added to the list.

Health Canada has officially pulled seven of these food items from the market due to the discovery of possible norovirus, salmonella and undeclared ingredients – so it’s best to check your fridge and pantry ASAP to see if you’ve got any of ’em in there.
