President's Choice® recalling Blue Menu™ Protein Pancake mixes due to potential allergen risk

BRAMPTON, ON, May 10, 2017 /CNW/ - Loblaw Companies Limited is recalling two SKUs of PC® Blue Menu™ Protein Pancake Mix (Buttermilk and Apple Cinnamon), sold in stores between February 1 and May 5, 2017. The products contain lupin flour, which could cause a potential reaction for consumers with peanut allergies.

Lupin is a legume belonging to the same plant family as peanuts. It is not considered to be one of the priority allergens in Canada and does not require an additional precautionary label on packaging, nor is there currently one approved for use.

In an effort to ensure the safety of our customers, President's Choice® looks forward to working with Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency on how best to inform Canadians about the potential risk of lupin.

The products were sold at the following locations:



Fortinos®, Loblaws®, No Frills®, Real Canadian Superstore®, valu-mart®, Your Independent Grocer®, Zehrs®, and affiliated independent stores


Atlantic Superstore®, Dominion®, Your Independent Grocer®, and affiliated independent stores


Maxi®, Maxi & Cie®, Provigo®, Provigo le Marché®, AXEP®, and Intermarché®


Extra Foods ®, No Frills®, Real Canadian Superstore®, Real Canadian Wholesale Club®, Your Independent Grocer®, and affiliated independent stores


All products have been removed from store shelves. Customers can return the product to any store where PC® products are sold and the customer service desk will provide a full refund, with or without a receipt.

We apologize for any concern or inconvenience this recall may have caused.
