CFIA names Gwillimdale in onion recall

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has updated the recall of onions from Mexico to identify Gwillimdale Farms as a brand name involved.

The onions came to Canada via Prosource Produce of Hailey, Idaho.

The whole onions were sold at retail in two, three and five-pound packages and also to restaurants, foodservice companies, hospitals, nursing homes and cafeterias.

The recall is based on the discovery of salmonella food-poisoning bacteria. The CFIA says there have been no reports of human illness in Canada.
