PC Chicken strips pulled from area shelves

 Loblaw Companies Limited is recalling PC brand chicken strips – gluten free from the marketplace because they contain gluten/wheat which is not declared on the label. People who have an allergy to wheat, or have celiac disease or other gluten-related disorders should not consume the recalled product. The product is believed to have been widely available in Hamilton and Halton.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency recommends the public check to see if they have the recalled product in their home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

For persons withe an allergy to wheat, or have celiac disease or other gluten-related disorders, the agency urges them to not consume the recalled product as it may cause a serious or life-threatening reaction.

This recall was triggered by consumer complaints.  The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. If other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings.

There have been reported reactions associated with the consumption of this product.

The food safety investigation and recall process is initiated when there is reason to believe that a potentially contaminated food has reached the marketplace. The Canadian food supply is one of the safest in the world. However, no food safety system can guarantee zero risk. At any point in the production system, food can become contaminated with bacteria, viruses, parasites, chemicals, undeclared allergens or material such as glass or metal fragments.
