The details: Even more dried basil has been deemed (potentially) unfit for consumption by the CFIA, due to (potential) salmonella poisoning. All of the above basil came from a Shah Trading Co., Ltd. facility in Scarborough. By this point, you should know the drill—if you’ve got it, chuck it! [CFIA]
