What you should do
Check to see if you have recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the point of purchase.
If you have an allergy to peanut, do not consume the recalled products as they may cause a serious or life-threatening reaction.
This recall was triggered by the company. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. If other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings.
The CFIA is verifying that industry is removing recalled product from the marketplace.
