Les Œufs Richard Eggs Inc. is recalling several egg products across the province of Quebec which may be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria.
For those unfamiliar, salmonella is a type of bacteria that is frequently reported to cause food-related illness in North America.
You can’t see, smell, or taste it but in severe cases, it can be life-threatening.
Usually, it can cause an upset stomach, diarrhea, fever, and pain and cramping in your belly. Most people get better on their own at home within 4 to 7 days.
Below is a list of products that are affected via CTV News.
Affected products have ‘lot code’ Q29 printed on them.
Packages without any listed lot codes have also been recalled. We recommend also checking the ‘best before’ dates:
