5 food products are recalled in Canada and one of them is due to the presence of glass

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency regularly maintains an up-to-date list of food recalls in Canada and several notifications have been issued recently.

In some of the recalls, the CFIA warns of undeclared allergens that can cause reactions in sensitive individuals.

For items contaminated with microbes or containing foreign matter, the agency advises not to “use, sell, serve or distribute” the affected products.
