Background

This recall was triggered by a recall in another country. The CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. If other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings.

During the CFIA's recall verification activities, it was discovered that some product remained available for sale at some retail locations. As such, CFIA advised the company to conduct its recall again.

The CFIA is verifying that industry is removing recalled product from the marketplace.
