Then, on July 7, the CFIA announced that the recall had been expanded to products sold in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, and possibly distributed nationally.
Anyone who has this products should dispose of it or return it to the place of purchase.
Thus far, there haven’t been any reactions reported as a result of consuming the product. However, anyone who is allergic to milk should not consume it, as it could cause a life-threatening reaction.
