Sixty-three people have fallen ill, including 18 who needed hospital treatment.
The Public Health Agency of Canada says there are cases in B-C, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec.
The agency says it’s conducting a food safety investigation, however, the source of the bacterial infection has yet to be identified.
Two deaths are reported, but it has yet to be determined if salmonella was a contributing cause.
