The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) announced Monday that Five Star Shellfish Inc. is recalling Five Star Shellfish Inc. brand large standard and mixed oysters from the marketplace due to possible Salmonella contamination. Consumers should not consume the recalled products described below.






This recall was triggered by Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) test results. The CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products.

There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products.



Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections. Healthy people may experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.

The CFIA says if you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor.

Check to see if you have recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.
