Consumers voice salmonella concerns about Chia seeds

Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

One woman claims Chia seeds from a health food supplements store is what infected her with Salmonella more than once since December of last year.

Dana Ollen bought Chia Seeds from Body Energy Club, who she claims gets its seeds from Advantage Health Matters.

Her Lawyer Stephen Gibson says after working with the health authority, they narrowed down that the seeds were in their opinion to blame for her salmonella infections.

“She took this product regularly for months without knowing that was what was causing her salmonella infections,” said Gibson.

Purchasing these seeds were all in an effort to improve Ollen’s health.

Gibson says both companies she’s accusing have been cooperative with the health authority.
