Canada recalls some Sprouts Alive products

Canadians are being warned not to eat certain Sprouts Alive-brand products because of possible salmonella contamination.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said the warning and related recall involves all best before date codes up to and including Aug. 28 of Sprouts Alive baby onion sprouts and the brand's alfalfa and onion sprouts. The products were distributed in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

The inspection agency said food contaminated with salmonella might not look or smell spoiled, but consumption could cause serious and sometimes deadly infections.
