Canada-Wide Baby-Food Recall Expanded

A Canada-wide baby-food recall warning issued last week has been updated to include additional products. After a further investigation by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, Loblaw Companies Limited is recalling all varieties of its PC Organics baby food pouches due to the risk of deadly bacteria forming in the product. A manufacturing error resulted in excess water in the product, which under certain circumstances could support the growth of Clostridium Botulinum and pose a health risk to consumers. Symptoms of Clostridium botulinum include nausea, vomiting, fatigue, dizziness, blurred or double vision, dry mouth, respiratory failure and paralysis. In severe cases, there is a risk of death. The products were sold at the following locations up to and including February 8, 2017.

Ontario: Fortinos, Loblaws, No Frills, Real Canadian Superstore, Real Canadian Wholesale Club, valu-mart, Your Independent Grocer, Zehrs, Shoppers Drug Mart, and affiliated independent stores.

Québec: Club entrepôt, Maxi, Maxi & Cie, Presto, Provigo, Provigo le Marché, AXEP, Pharmaprix, and Intermarché.

Loblaw Companies Ltd., which operates Loblaws, is warning customers not to consume the pouches and to either return them or throw them out. A full list of the affected PC Organics baby food pouches, UPC codes and stores which sold the affected products can be found on the CFIA website.
