Public Health Agency of Canada MIA again: Mr. Christie’s brand Arrowroot Biscuits recalled due to potential off-taste

If there’s been reported illnesses, shouldn’t the Public Health Agency of Canada be reporting those illnesses?

m-christieNo, they’re busy collecting their pensionable hours in meaningless meetings.

And it’s nothing new.

It’s the Potomac two-step (Ottawa River version).

I still don’t dance.

The food recall warning issued on October 21, 2016 has been updated to include additional codes. This additional information was identified during the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s (CFIA) food safety investigation.

This recall was triggered by the company. The CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. If other products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings.

The CFIA is verifying that industry is removing recalled product from the marketplace.

There have been reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products.

And that’s not a happy M. Christie baby. This is a happy baby, with one of my daughters, and I take credit for my grandson’s curls, but they probably belong to their dad.
