The China Syndrome: Canada Recalls Imported Dessert

CFIA and Regent Long Marketing and Distribution Ltd. have announced that all date codes of Nissin Cha Cha Dessert sold in a 440g package (2 packs of 220g) bearing UPC 4 897878 550005 are potentially contaminated with melamine and are being recalled. The dessert is distributed in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia.

The milk-based dessert was manufactured in Hong Kong using Yili Pure Milk, one of the milk products in which the Hong Kong Centre for Food Safety detected melamine.

The Centre for Food Safety issued a recall notice for this product in Hong Kong on September 19th. The Canadian action came after Regent – the Canadian importer – was advised of the recall by its supplier, Nissin Foods Company.

There have been no reported illnesses linked to this recalled product. Nevertheless, consumers who have purchased Nissin Cha Cha Dessert bearing the indicated UPC number should either discard the product or return it to the store for a refund.
