BC Food Manufacturer Investigating Potential Health Risk

DUNCAN, BC, June 5, 2011 /CNW/ - Nonuttin' Foods Inc., a BC Food Manufacturer, has issued a voluntary recall for five food products that were distributed in stores nationally and through online orders since February of 2011.  The risk assessment conducted by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has classified the five products affected as either moderate or low risk for sesame.  By Monday, June 6, it is expected that the CFIA will put the exact details on their site at:  http://active.inspection.gc.ca/eng/corp/recarapp_dbe.asp

Alana Elliott, President and Founder of Nonuttin' Foods said, "While we do not yet know a confirmed source of any sesame, we are working with the CFIA to determine the course of our investigation.  This was triggered by one report of a non-life-threatening reaction while eating our Fruit Explosion Trail Mix along with several other food products not manufactured by us."

Elliott continues, "The investigation has been puzzling as sesame is not used as an ingredient in the Nonuttin' facility nor in the facilities of our suppliers.  We will continue to explore this with our suppliers who are cooperating fully."

Nonuttin' Foods was created by Elliott, the mother of a child with 4 life-threatening food allergies when she could find no safe snacks for her child.  Since that time, the company has been dedicated to serving consumers who have difficulty finding tasty, healthful snacks free of multiple food allergens.

"We want to confirm the results of potential sesame traces without delay.  It is imperative to us to err on the side of caution for our customers while we investigate.  I would expect no less for my loved ones with food allergies," said Elliott.

In the meantime, the affected product labels will be amended with the voluntary statement, "May contain sesame".

If you have any questions, please contact Nonuttin' Foods Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Pacific Standard Time, toll free at 1-866-714-5411.
