OTTAWA — The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has issued a warning to the public to avoid certain foods (see below) manufactured in Canada that may be contaminated with salmonella.
The affected products, which include a batch of Lay’s Smokey Bacon flavour potato chips, contain dry powder and paste hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP) ingredients that have been recalled in the U.S. and Canada by Basic Food Flavors, Inc.
“This is an ongoing food safety investigation. The CFIA is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to identify and remove all affected products imported into Canada from the U.S.,” reads a CFIA press release. “The CFIA is also working with Canadian manufacturers to recall foods containing affected HVP ingredients.”
