The Public Health Agency of Canada is warning Canadians to avoid two brands of headcheese as the number of people becoming sick due to salmonella continues to grow. A total of 18 Canadians, 17 in B.C. and one in Ontario, have now become ill due to salmonella. Most are older than 70 years of age. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has issued recalls for Freybe and Brandt brands of headcheese.
Headcheese is a deli product made out of meat from the head of a pig, combined with gelatin and spices.
