What Can You Do To Protect Yourself?

According to the CFIA, if you find out you have any recalled products in your home, you can simply throw them out, or return them to the store where you bought them from.

The agency also warns consumers that once a food safety investigation is conducted it can trigger the recall of other products.

In that case, the CFIA will notify the public of the other high-risk products through updated food recall warnings on its website and via Twitter.

If you recently stocked up on food, you might want to check the contents of your pantry to make sure all of your items are safe.
