Various items were sold at Costco and Amazon.
Health Canada has recalled several items in recent weeks that have been sold in Quebec. From sauces and children's clothing to food products and floor cleaners, items are flying off the shelves — and not for the best of reasons.
If you're in possession of any of the affected items, Health Canada recommends to stop using them immediately and return them to the point of purchase. Additionally, items sold at major retailers, including Costco, Amazon and elsewhere, are eligible for reimbursement.
So, check your pantry and fridge and get that receipt ready for a refund.
