The notice states that “This type of issue is not typically associated with the manufacturing process but can occur occasionally when a consumer returns altered products to the retail store for a refund.”

Infant formula products have been found where the tamper-proof seals have been broken and the product inside those packages had been substituted with something else. The recall notice did not state which brands were tampered with, or what product was put into the packages in place of the actual formula.

Consumers shopping for infant formula should carefully examine each package to make sure that the security seal is intact and hasn’t been altered and that product has not been substituted for the formula. If you have product that seems to have been altered or tampered with, do not use it; contact your local law enforcement or the CFIA for help.

The Canadian government is taking all necessary steps to protect the safety of the food supply. If more information is uncovered, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency will alert the public.
