Sausage roll recall due to labelling deficiency

An Innisfail food processor is recalling products that were shipped to British Columbia and Ontario, because of a labelling deficiency. Nossack Gourmet Foods Ltd., which is part of the Red Deer-based Nossack Food Group, sold chicken sausage rolls that contained milk, even though this ingredient was not identified on the label. The affected products are the company’s 840-gram Quick Comforts chicken sausage rolls, its unbranded 5.28 kg (48-count) chicken sausage rolls, and its unbranded 5.28 kg (48-count) unbaked chicken sausage rolls.

The affected products are the company’s 840-gram Quick Comforts chicken sausage rolls, its unbranded 5.28 kg (48-count) chicken sausage rolls, and its unbranded 5.28 kg (48-count) unbaked chicken sausage rolls.

Catharina Nossack, a member of the family that owns and operates Nossack Food Group, said the incomplete list of ingredients would be a concern to anyone who has a milk allergy.

“If you don’t, there’s no problem with the product.”

However, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is advising consumers to discard the products or return them to the store where they were purchased.

Nossack said the recall applies to “a lot” of her company’s product, and that the labelling error occurred over a period of time.

“We are correcting it as we speak,” she said. “We’re getting new labels done; we’re labelling all of the ones that we do have in stock.

“But we cannot take anything back into the warehouse, because it’s been out of our federal system.”

The CFIA said in a news release that the recall was triggered by a consumer complaint, and that there was “one reported reaction.” It added that it’s conducting an investigation that could potentially lead to the recall of other products, but that it would notify the public is this was the case.

The CFIA also said it’s possible the affected chicken sausage rolls have been distributed beyond B.C. and Ontario, although Nossack pointed out that retailers normally can’t ship food across provincial boundaries.

She said a failure to identify milk ingredients is probably not as serious as excluding nuts or even gluten on the label.

“If you look at the CFIA website, you’ll notice that the last 10 to 15 recalls from different manufacturers have all related back to milk,” she said, adding that the error is serious nonetheless.

“It’s still an allergen.”
