The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says green onions sold at five Highland Farms supermarkets in the GTA have tested positive for salmonella.


While the onions haven’t been definitively pegged as the source of a string of cases in the area, the unmarked bunches are being looked at by federal and provincial investigators. The inspection agency is now trying to determine where the onions were produced and shipped, says Linda LeBlanc, a food safety recall specialist with the federal group.


Affected stores
The onions were sold at these Highland Farms stores between July 30 and Aug. 1, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency:


  • 4750 Dufferin St.

  • 3300 Rutherford Rd. in Vaughan

  • 850 Ellesmere Rd. in Scarborough

  • 148 Bennett Rd. in Scarborough
