Health Canada Has Recalled 5 Food Items — So Check Your Groceries
"Do not use, sell, serve or distribute the affected products."
Health Canada recently recalled several grocery products from the marketplace and the list has since expanded. The federal health department and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) have flagged a handful of items that have been sold across Canada, some of which are due to the presence of pieces of wood or metal and others due to bacterial contamination.
The CFIA is urging consumers to inspect their groceries to verify if they're in possession of any of the recalled food products, if so, it is recommended to toss them out immediately or return them to the point of purchase. Health Canada also advises not to serve, sell, distribute or consume any of the affected items.
