E. coli, undeclared ingredients and Listeria are the culprits.
Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) are currently recalling five products from the marketplace due to a number of food-related issues and hazards including undeclared ingredients, Listeria and the presence of E. coli.
When it comes to food recalls, Health Canada has been busy removing countless items from shelves, including recalled chocolates, peanut butter, and even hummus. Yes! Even some hummus isn't safe anymore.
Now, the federal department is adding more products to the list of recalled items, and it's best that you check your groceries. The CFIA is urging the public to not consume, sell or distribute the affected products, and to toss them away or return them to the point of purchase.
