The Public Health Agency of Canada is investigating an outbreak of salmonella infections in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador.
In a news release Thursday, the agency said it's working with provincial partners, as well as the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, and Health Canada to investigate the outbreak.
"Based on the investigation findings to date, exposure to eggs has been identified as a likely source of the outbreak," the release said. "Many of the individuals who became sick reported consuming, preparing, cooking and baking at home with eggs."
