The Canadian Food Inspection Agency and grocery store chain Loblaw Companies Ltd. has issued a voluntary recall on eight types of President’s Choice brand organic baby cereals, warning that the products may be rancid. The affected products, which come in 227-gram green and white boxes, include cereals made from mixed grains, oats, rice and wheat; the full list of products and their UPC codes are available on the CFIA website.
At least one related case of illness has been reported so far, and parents are being warned not to feed their children any cereal that smells “off” or has a strange odour. If an infant has already consumed one of the affected products, parents should watch for symptoms of nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, and seek medical attention if there are any concerns.
For those with questions or comments, President’s Choice can be contacted directly at 1-888-495-5111 or firstname.lastname@example.org, while the CFIA can be contacted Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. at 1-800-442-2342 / TTY 1-800-465-7735.
