Feb. 15 – Allergy Alert – Presence of undeclared gluten in Mi-Del brand "Gluten Free" and "Wheat Free" Arrowroot Cookies.

Feb. 13 – Health Hazard Alert – Dairyland brand 1% partly skimmed milk may contain a chemical sanitizer.

Feb. 13 – Health Hazard Alert – Abott’s Choice brand cheese products may contain Listeria bacteria, which can lead to food poisoning.

Feb. 13 – Health Hazard Alert – Delahven Orchards brand non pasteurized fresh apple cider may contain E.coli.

Feb. 12 – Allergy Alert – Presence of undeclared wheat in Cedar brand Spicy Falafel Legume Mix.

That’s light for the CFIA – there were 20 recalls during the previous month, and 16 in December.

It’s comforting to know that the CFIA will issue a recall if they feel there is a serious risk.

But it would be even more comforting if they would let the consumers decide risk for themselves, and at least give us a choice of whether we want to steer clear of eggs with growth drugs or maple syrup with lead.
