Trichinella alert for Clyde River

The Department of Health is advising residents of Clyde River that polar bear meat distributed in the community in early October may have trichinella.

Meat must be thoroughly cooked before eating so you don’t get sick. Freezing or fermenting does not kill trichinella. Do not eat or feed infected meat to animals as they can also get sick.
