The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) issues public advisories for all food products where consumption of the food could cause serious health consequences.
There are about 350 food recalls in Canada every year. The good news is that there’s an easy way to know if you have one of the products at home.
What you should do:
- Sign up for recall notifications by email, follow them on Twitter, or join the CFIA community on Facebook
- If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor.
- Check to see if you have recalled products in your home or establishment. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the location where they were purchased.
