Mars Food Canada also stated that there have been no reports of illnesses related to the recalled products.

Christie brand Ritz Bits Sandwiches in cheese and pizza flavours sold across the country are being recalled due to possible Salmonella contamination, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

The recalled Ritz crackers were sold in packs of 180 grams, 30 X 42 grams and 42 grams.

Consumers who have these products should not eat them, and should discard them.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

CFIA said the recall was prompted by a recall in another country.

In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

So far no complains of illnesses connected to the products included in the recall have been reported to Mondelez Global.
