This recall was triggered by lab results conducted during the foodborne illness outbreak investigation. A food safety investigation has been launched, which may lead to the recall of more products. If this happens more recalls will be posted at the CFIA web site. The CFIA is also making sure that the recalled products are removed from the marketplace.

If you purchased any of those recalled products, do not eat them. Throw them away in a sealed or double bagged package in a secure trash can, or take them back to the store where you bought them for a full refund.

If you have eaten any of these products within the last two weeks, contact your healthcare provider to see if you should be vaccinated against the virus. If it has been more than two weeks, monitor your health for the symptoms of a hepatitis A infection, which include fever, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle aches, dark urine, light stools, and jaundice, and see your doctor if they appear.
