Are you allergic to milk?

Allergic to milk? Lactose intolerant?

Got milk? The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) announced August 15th that there is a recall of Maple Leaf sausages. This is due to undeclared milk ingredients.

If you are allergic to milk then you will check the label of products you buy for "hidden" milk products. If you sell food then you have to label it correctly. Maple Leaf failed to do so on some of their Country Morning Garlic Sausage Ring and Olympic Fine Meats Ukrainian Garlic Sausage.

As of August 16th there had not been any reports of injuries linked to the consumption of the sausages. The sausages were sold in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, and Saskatchewan.

The concern by the CFIA is that if the product is consumed by a person who is allergic to milk then it could cause a serious or life-threatening reaction.
