Canadian Hot Dog Relish Recalled for Botulism Risk

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency announced this week that Orange Blossom Farm is recalling Hot Dog Relish in response to a food safety investigation being conducted by CFIA. The relish was sold at St. Jacob’s Farmers’ Market in Ontario in 500 ml containers.

When ingested, the toxin causes botulism poisoning, a potentially life-threatening illness.

According to the CFIA  announcement, the food safety investigation may lead to the recall of other products.  CFIA is urging consumers who have the recalled product in their homes to throw it out.
