The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) reported this week that Morgan Williams International Inc. is recalling Mr. Porky brand Original Scratchings from the marketplace due to  possible Salmonella contamination. Consumers should not consume the recalled product described below:

Brand Product Size UPC Codes
Mr. Porky Original Scratchings
(Cooked Seasoned Pork Rind)
65 g 5 010052 112700 All Best Before dates up to and including 19 FEB 22

The affected product was distributed nationwide.


This recall was triggered by a recall in another country.

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

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

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.
