Frozen cream puffs and chocolate éclairs linked to salmonella outbreak

Everyone likes to eat the food that tastes good, but also we need to think about the health aspect of the food we consume and the nutrients and vitamins it gives our body.

An investigation into an outbreak of foodborne illness has led to frozen pastries.

For the fourth time this year, the Canadian Food inspection agency has recalled a frozen food product over the fear of salmonella contamination. More than 70 people across Canada are infected by a foodborne illness.

Various chocolate eclairs and cream puffs have been recalled due to the outbreak, which has caused illnesses in people ranging in age from one to 88. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), there have been 27 reported illnesses in B.C., 13 in Ontario, 12 in Alberta, 10 in Manitoba, nine in Saskatchewan and two in Quebec, all between last November and this March.

During the last couple of outbreaks, none of the affected people have been hospitalized or needed serious medical help, this case is completely different. Nineteen people have ended up in the hospital. Two of those 19 later died, although it has not yet been determined if salmonella was definitely a factor in their deaths.

PHAC says many of the people who reported illnesses had consumed Celebrate-brand eclairs and profiteroles, which are sold in resealable plastic tubs.

They are advising that anybody who has purchased those products do not consume them. Instead, the pastries should be thrown out and any container that was used to store them should be washed thoroughly. Anyone who touches one of the recalled products is advised to wash their hands thoroughly for 20 seconds after doing so.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has issued a recall notice for several Celebrate products, including Mini Chocolate Eclairs (365-gram packages), Classic Profiteroles (325-gram packages) and Egg Nog Profiteroles (375-gram packages). Also recalled are five flavours of profiteroles sold in four-kilogram tubs. Full details are available on the CFIA’s website.

People who experience symptoms, or who have underlying medical conditions, should contact their health care provider if they suspect they have a Salmonella infection. Please make sure everyone in your family is healthy and feel good. The food we consume is a very important factor in our own health. After all, we are what we eat, let’s stay healthy!

The previous agreement expired on Jan. 12. The union represents more than 1,400 transit operators and maintenance workers at Winnipeg Transit. It appears there will not be a transit strike in Winnipeg. The City and the Amalgamated Transit Union say they have rea...

Who likes to be stuck in traffic? I guess, no none, but that is what you have to deal with in a big city. There are certain streets and neighborhoods you know you always will be stuck in traffic, so, naturally, people try to plan their routes avoiding such roads. What can be worse than downtown traffic with all the cars and traffic lights, well… try the whole West End with all the electricity down. A large power outage in Winnipeg's West End had thousands...
