Canada – Outbreak of Salmonella infections linked to peaches imported from the United States

PHAC

This notice has been updated to advise that the outbreak appears to be over and the outbreak investigation has been closed. Peaches imported from the United States are no longer under investigation.

Why should you take note

The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) collaborated with federal and provincial public health partners, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S. CDC), and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to investigate an outbreak of Salmonella infections that occurred in two provinces. Given that Salmonella illness reporting linked to this outbreak has significantly decreased over the last four weeks, the outbreak appears to be over and the investigation has been closed.

Investigation findings identified exposure to peaches from Prima Wawona from the United States as a likely source of the outbreak. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) issued a consumer advisory for peaches recalled by Prima Wawona, sold from June 1, 2020 to August 22, 2020 in Canada. These peaches included yellow, white and organic peaches and were sold under various brand names:

  • Extrafresh
  • Harvest Sweet
  • Prima
  • Sweet 2 Eat
  • Sweet O
  • Sweet Value
  • Wawona
  • Wegmans

Canadians are advised not to eat any recalled products or any foods containing recalled products.

Peaches grown in Canada were not associated with this outbreak.

About product recalls and withdrawals

If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be ‘withdrawn’ (taken off the shelves) or ‘recalled’ (when customers are asked to return the product). The FSA issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food. In some cases, a ‘Food Alert for Action’ is issued. This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers.
