According to the CFIA, African Foodways Market has recalled certain batch/lots of “Tiger Nuts” from the Canadian marketplace due to suspected Salmonella contamination. As a result of this reported defect, you should neither serve nor consume the recalled food products identified above.

The Tiger Nuts associated with this recall are thought to have been sourced from Bistak Enterprises Inc., a Saskatoon, Saskatchewan establishment, that has recently recalled all current batch/lots of Beans, Flour, Grains, Fats, Oils and Meat products due to suspected Salmonella contamination reportedly caused by rodent infestation.

Please note: while these food products may be past their use-by dates, they may be in your freezers, storage chillers and/or pantries. If you have purchased these products during the time period up to and including November 18, 2021, please check your refrigerators, chillers, freezers and/or other food storage areas to ensure these food products have not been stored for future consumption. If found, these products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase for refund.

==> For information about Salmonellosis (Salmonella poisoning), please consult the “Illnesses” tab on this site, located at the top of this page.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

Proposed Remedy:
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled African Foodways Market Tiger Nuts, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation.
