(Montreal) The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) announced Friday that Montreal-based Nature’s Touch Frozen Food is recalling various brands of frozen mangoes because they may be contaminated with the hepatitis virus Teo.
According to the CFIA the following products should not be consumed:
Nature’s Touch Frozen Mango (2kg), Compliments Frozen Mango (600kg), Irresistible’s Frozen Mango (600kg), President’s Choice Frozen Mango (600kg).
All affected products have the label “Best before November 2022” on the packaging.
The products have been sold in Quebec, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia and may be sold in other provinces and territories.
Infection with the hepatitis A virus is usually accompanied by fever, feeling generally unwell, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting and abdominal discomfort.
Infection can also cause jaundice.
Symptoms may appear up to 50 days after consumption.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency advises people who believe they have become ill after consuming the recalled product to contact a physician.
The recalled products must be discarded or returned to the store where they were purchased.
