The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is warning consumers once again about possible salmonella contamination in their favourite snack foods. Late Sunday, the CFIA issued an alert for two different types of pretzels recalled by Basic Food Flavors Inc. in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The affected products include the 9 oz. Honey Mustard Pretzel Bites by H.K. Anderson with the UPC 0 70271 00130 3. The codes on the packaging include May 14 10 I4 and May 14 10 G5.
The 300g Honey Mustard flavour Pretzel Nuggets by President’s Choice (right) was also recalled. The UPC reads 0 60383 99222 4 and the codes include 2010 MA 14 I2, 2010 MA 28 G3, 2010 MA 28 I2 and 2010 JL 15 H7.
The products are being recalled due to salmonella contamination in hydrolysed vegetable protein and were distributed nationally.
On March 2, the CFIA issued an alert for the recall of Sweet Maui Onion Hawaiian Kettle Style Potato Chips sold at Costco stores in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.
The products on the recall list can be returned to their originating purchase location for a refund.
