Piller's Fine Foods of Waterloo is recalling over 1 thousand pounds of ready-to-eat salami and speck products that may have Salmonella in them.

The U. S.  Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service discovered the food-poisoning bacteria during its sampling and testing of imports.

There has been no word of any problems from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

The products subject to recall are vacuum-sealed random weight plastic packages with a Best Before date of May 12, 2018.

The items were shipped to distribution centers in several American states including California, Illinois, and Michigan.

Piller's is owned by Standard Brands of Vancouver, which owns a number of meat industry plants in the United States and Canada.


For two years, the Ontario government consulted with employers and employees as part of the Changing Workplaces Review.

Among the results were significant amendments to the Employment Standards Act.

The Ontario Federation of Agriculture took part in consultations, submitted recommendations and worked with other industry representatives to ensure farm employers and their employees were fairly represented.

Agricultural production is a seasonal activity.  

As a result, current exemptions and special rules under the ESA are necessary for farm employers to run businesses that often require seasonal employees, long hours during planting and harvesting seasons.
