recalled-HardyWares-mustard-relish Mustard relish from HardyWares Preserves in Nova Scotia is under recall by Canadian authorities because of possible contamination with the bacteria that causes botulism poisoning. The recalled relish, sold in 250 ml jars, can be identified by the HardyWares logo on the label and a “Packaged on” date of Dec. 3, 2015, according to the recall notice on the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s website. No other traceability information is available. Laboratory test results spurred the recall. No illnesses had been linked to the recalled mustard relish as of Wednesday. Canadian authorities warn that consumers should not eat the recalled mustard relish. “Check to see if you have recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased,” according to the recall notice. “Food contaminated with Clostridium botulinum toxin may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, fatigue, dizziness, blurred or double vision, dry mouth, respiratory failure and paralysis. In severe cases of illness, people may die.” The HardyWares Preserves website describes the company as a home-based business that has been producing jellies, jams, garnishes and pickled foods since 2008.
