      A food company based in Metro Vancouver has issued a recall for some of its soup products that were distributed across Canada.

      The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) stated that Happy Planet initiated a recall on September 25 for two types of its soups due to spoilage.

      One is the Berkeley Butternut Squash Soup, sold in 2 x 832 millilitre quantities, with UPC 7 79172 61647 9 and all best before dates from 2020OC30 up to and including 2020DE05.

      The other is Thai Coconut Soup, also sold in quantities of 2 x 832 millilitres, with UPC 7 79172 61644 8 and all best before dates from 2020OC28 up to and including 2020DE08.

      Anyone who has these specific products should dispose of them or return them to the place of purchase.

      Happy Planet is recalling some of its Thai Coconut Soup products (packaging of the recalled product may appear different than shown).

      Burnaby-based Happy Planet, which offers a range of smoothies, juices, soup, plant-based meal bowls, and dairy products, was launched in Vancouver in 1994 by Randal Ius and Gregor Robertson, who has since left the company and was Vancouver's former mayor.

      This recall follows several recalls of food products distributed in B.C., including popcorn, beef sausages and burgers, artichoke dip, black fungus, Manila clams, and chicken strips.
