Whole raw onions on recall

Onions grown in Mexico and distributed across North America by Prosource Produce of Idaho are on recall because they could be contaminated with salmonella food-poisoning bacteria.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said they have come to retailers in Ontario and Quebec and may have been re-packaged.

The CFIA says retailers, distributors, manufacturers, and food service establishments such as hotels, restaurants, cafeterias, hospitals, and nursing homes should not serve, use, or sell the recalled products described below.
