Sunkist product recall

Sunkist Blends brand Chocolate Banana & Mango Premium Fruit & Nuts are being recalled from stores because the product contains pistachios and hazelnuts which are not declared on the label. 

There has been one reported illness due to the consumption of the product.

Consumers with an allergy to these nuts are advised not consume this product, as it could cause a serious or life-threatening reaction.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is currently conducting a food safety investigation into the matter, which may lead to the recall of more products. If other high-risk products are recalled the CFIA will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warning.

The CFIA enforces Canada's labelling laws and works with associations, distributors, food manufacturers and importers to ensure complete and appropriate labelling of all foods. 

The CFIA will be ensuring that the industry removes recalled products from the marketplace.

Product: Sunkist Blends Chocolate Banana & Mango Premium Fruit & Nuts 198 g
