The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is recalling pre-cooked chicken breast strips over salmonella fears.

The Seasoned, Cooked Chicken Breast Strips brand by Le Champ du Coq may be undercooked, the federal government agency warned.

The CFIA and distributor Desco Services Alimentaires Inc. are warning the public not to eat the chicken, which has been sold in Ontario and Quebec.

It also may have been sold in other territories and provinces.

No illnesses have been reported.

The chicken is sold in four-kilogram boxes with a best before date of 2013-NO-05 and the UPC code 83569400974043. The boxes are stamped with CANADA 209.

The CFIA said food tainted with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled, but can cause serious and sometimes deadly infections. Symptoms include high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain, diarrhea and severe arthritis.
