Allergy Alert: Undeclared Ingredients In Canadian Products

CFIA has issued two separate allergy recall alerts – one affecting Québec and New Brunswick and the other affecting Ontario.

Cuisine Malimousse Inc. (Saint-Augustin, QC) has recalled all Best Before dates up to and including 2008 DE 02 (December 2, 2008) of Oceania Duo Mousse Lobster with tomatoes & basil / Smoked Salmon & pesto due to improperly declared milk. The product is sold in Québec and New Brunswick in 130 g packages identified with UPC 7 72643 02600 5. 

Cuisine Malimousse agreed to the voluntary recall after it was found that milk was declared as an ingredient on the French portion of the label, but not on the English portion. Individuals who are allergic to milk protein may suffer a severe reaction after consuming a product that contains milk.

Baltic Bread Products Limited (Hamilton, ON) has recalled the following products due to undeclared egg, milk and soy. The recalled items were distributed only in Ontario.

  • Babka European Style Coffee Cake, 400 g (UPC 0 64292 00221 0): contains undeclared milk

  • Danish Pastries, 250 g (UPC 0 64292 10219 4): contains undeclared soy
