Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) have recalled several food items in the last few days, and now, yet another product is being removed from the marketplace. The federal health department is currently recalling a mushroom product due to the presence of both insects and mould.

The class three food recall was flagged on January 23, 2023, and was triggered by Aliments Tousain Inc. The recall applies to the following product:

  • Dublin Mixed Forest Mushrooms | 454 g | Best Before: 10/08/26 and 11/07/26
Health Canada said that the recalled item has been sold across Quebec and is urging consumers to "not use, sell, serve or distribute the affected product."
No illnesses linked to the consumption of the recalled mushrooms have been reported by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency However, the CFIA recommends reporting any health and/or safety concerns to Health Canada.
"It’s important to report side effects, injuries and other product-related health and safety concerns so we can make important safety decisions about the products you use," the feds indicate on its website.

If you are suffering from a side effect or illness related to a recalled product, Health Canada recommends contacting your doctor, local authority or poison control, if needed.
