TORONTO (CP) - The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has broadened an earlier food recall of vegetarian products that contain egg protein not listed among ingredients on their labels.
People with egg allergies, who can suffer serious reactions if exposed to egg protein, should avoid these products, the agency said.
The earlier warning suggested listed vegetarian foods marketed under the YTS Veggie Food brand with expiration dates from 4/27/04 to 4/27/05 were covered by the recall.
But the agency has learned that packages of the foods sold in Canada may not bear an expiration date. Consequently all packages of the following YTS Veggie Food brand products distributed in Canada
are subject to the recall:
-Veggie Lamb, 10 ounce (283 gram), UPC 6 42971 95705 3.
-Veggie Golden Roast, 1 pound (454 gram), UPC 6 42971 95701 5.
-Liang Zen Golden Ham, 2.2 pound (35.3 ounce), UPC 6 42971 95712 1.
The affected products imported from the United States were distributed only in the Toronto area. The importer, Perfect International Co. Ltd., of North York, Ont., is voluntarily recalling the products from the market.
The agency said it is continuing its food safety investigation and monitoring the effectiveness of the recall.
