Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) have recalled several food products that have been sold across Canada, many of which are due to the presence of wood, metal and chemicals, and others due to microbial contamination.

The CFIA is urging consumers to check their groceries to see if they're in possession of any of the recalled food products, if so, it's recommended to toss them out right away or return them to the point of purchase. Health Canada also advises not to serve, sell, distribute or consume any affected items.
