Canadian Food Inspection Agency recalled frozen profiteroles, éclairs due to salmonella

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has linked the nationwide Salmonella Enteritidis outbreak to frozen Celebrate-brand of profiteroles and mini chocolate éclairs and issued a recall for the products. The agency says 73 people became ill (laboratory confirmed)due to salmonella, most of them in B.C. (27), with cases reported in Alberta (12), Saskatchewan (9), Manitoba (10), Ontario (13) and Quebec (2). Nineteen of those needed to be hospitalized, with two deaths reported. “However, it hasn’t been determined whether salmonella was a contributing cause in these deaths.” says the CFIA in a statement. “Many of the people who became sick reported eating Celebrate brand classic/classical or egg nog flavored profiteroles or mini chocolate éclairs purchased at various grocery stores before their illnesses occurred.” Dr. Eleni Galanis with the B.C. Centre for Disease Control says investigators have linked the Salmonella that caused the disease to Celebrate-brand of profiteroles and mini chocolate éclairs. "That is not a common food ... that we see reported by people who are part of an outbreak, especially for salmonella. We anticipate chicken or egg being a common source," she said. Galanis said the B.C. outbreak was linked to products purchased at AG Foods stores in the Interior and northern B.C. and Fairway Markets in and around Victoria. The implicated products were manufactured in Thailand by Mountain Mist (The Belgian Baker) Thailand Ltd. and distributed in Canada by Retail Resource Services Inc., located in Beaumont, Alberta, Canada (Retail Resource). @
