OTTAWA — The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says red, white and yellow raw onions from ProSource Produce LLC of Hailey, Idaho are being recalled because of potential salmonella contamination.
The onions, which were imported from the Mexican state of Chihuahua, were sold between July 1 and August 31 in Ontario and Quebec, and possibly other provinces and territories.
They were marketed under several brand names including Big Bull, Peak Fresh Produce, Sierra Madre Produce, Marcon First Crop, Marcon Essentials, RioBlue, ProSource, Rio Valley and Imperial Fresh.
Consumers who have onions are advised to either throw them out or return them to the place of purchase.
No disease related to the produce has been reported so far.
Symptoms of salmonella poisoning can include fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, and in rare cases severe arthritis.
