Justine Mercier Le Droit Many kinds of Miss Vickie's crisps are being recalled in the country “because of the possible presence of pieces of glass” in the packaging.
In a notice published Tuesday evening, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) lists Miss Vickie's products concerned, while indicating that “a case of injury associated with the consumption of these products has been reported.” According to the company, this is a “minor dental injury”.
About twenty products – of different formats and varying flavors – are targeted by the recall. The “guaranteed freshness” dates on the packaging vary from December 15 to January 26.
The packages of chips affected by the recall were sold in Quebec, Ontario, the four Maritime provinces and online.
The codes for the products included in the recall are posted on the CFIA website.
On its website, the company states that the products were “made in Canada in one location.” The “voluntary recall” stems from “isolated reports of the presence of a small piece of glass found at the bottom of bags,” added Miss Vickie's Canada, who specifies that “so far, a small number of consumers have expressed concerns related to this situation ”.
The CFIA emphasizes for its part that “consumers must not consume the targeted products”, while restaurants and businesses “must not sell or use them”.
An investigation is underway and “could lead to the recall of other products,” said the CFIA.
