Mississauga Recalls of the Week – Nov. 15 2016


Published November 14, 2016 at 10:04 pm


Although most foods and products are safe, some edibles and items slip through the cracks and when they do, it’s good to be aware so you can fix or avoid them.

Here’s a list of products with recall notices:

Kidde Talking Combination Smoke and CO Alarms

The alarm can fail to sound when it reaches its seven year end of life if the batteries are replaced or, for the model without a battery backup, if power is removed and then restored to the alarm. This could lead consumers to believe it is still working, which poses a risk to consumers not being alerted to a fire or carbon monoxide incident in their home.

Golden Buffalo Pineapple Cake

Golden Buffalo brand pineapple cakes are being recalled as they contain milk and sulphites which are not declared on the label. People with an allergy to milk or sensitivity to sulphites should avoid consuming this product.

Ran-Cher Acres Goat Cheese

Ran-Cher Acres is recalling all flavours of their goat cheese product due to possible salmonella contamination. Consumers should avoid eating this product.

Hinty’s Black Bean and Yam Chili

Hinty’s is recalling its Black Bean and Yam Chili due to potential contamination of dangerous bacteria. Consumers should avoid eating this product.

“Phytovie Acore Vrai Calamus” Herbal Tea

“Phytovie Acore Vrai Calamus” herbal tea, an unauthorized natural health product, is being recalled after Health Canada testing found it to contain excessive levels of beta-asarone. Beta-asarone can be toxic if consumed in high amounts. The product was sold by Gourmet Nutrition F.B. Inc. over the Internet and may also be available at retail stores.
