Food contaminated with Salmonella may not smell bad, but it can still cause illnesses including fever, headaches, vomiting and nausea, according to Health Canada. Salmonella poisoning can lead to deadly infections in some cases.

Health Canada says the sesame seeds under recall should be thrown away or returned to the store where they were purchased.
