Health officials in Canada are warning people not to check their deep freezes for frozen, boxed burger patties sold at Safeway stores across the country Canada.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has already issued a recall all Safeway brand hamburger patties sold in Alberta—including packages branded as:

  1. Gourmet Meat Shoppe Big and Juicy Burgers
  2. Gourmet Meat Shoppe Prime Rib Burgers
