The Québec Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPAQ) announced a recall of Bio-Bon brand Végé-Pâté, due to the presence of gluten in the product. The pâté was labeled "Sans Gluten" (gluten-free).
The vegetarian pâté was packaged in 200g containers and sold in a number of unspecified retail stores in the province. The recall covers packages labeled with a "Best before" date of 4 février 2009 (February 4, 2009), and packages that do not show a "Best before" date.
Individuals who are sensitive to gluten may experience severe gastrointestinal discomfort after eating a food that contains gluten. Consumers who purchased this mislabeled pâté should return it to the store for a refund.
