The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) issued another food recall for certain frozen desserts sold in many well-known stores after inspectors learned that some of the initially recalled products had been released in error.

As a result, the CFIA issued another “food recall warning” on June 23 which is now on its website and that of Health Canada. This is in addition to the initial recall issued in April.

Nestlé Canada is now recalling DRUMSTICK Vanilla Chocolate Swirl non-dairy frozen dessert cones (lot 10530375).

“This product was initially recalled on April 16, 2021; the recall is reissued because a small amount of product was released in error. The product has only been shipped to limited locations in eastern Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces, ”Nestlé said in a statement. “This recall does not affect any other Drumstick or Nestlé product in Canada.”

Nestlé Canada Inc. is recalling Nestlé brand Drumstick Vanilla Chocolate Swirl non-dairy frozen dessert cones from the marketplace because they may contain milk which is not declared on the label.

“If you are allergic to milk, do not consume the recalled product as it could cause a serious or potentially fatal reaction,” the CFIA said in its food recall warning.

A reaction associated with the consumption of these products has been reported, the CFIA said.

This recall was triggered by CFIA test results and the CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation, which could lead to the recall of other products, he said. If other high risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated warnings.

The CFIA is verifying that the industry is withdrawing the recalled products from the market.

Walmart, Metro, Food Basics, Sobeys and FreshCo told Inside Halton they are carrying these products.

“A recall notice was sent to Sobeys and FreshCo stores in Ontario because some stores were selling this product. All products affected by this recall have been removed from store shelves in the region, ”Sobeys spokesperson Zakiah Lalani said in an email on June 24. “We continue to diligently follow all recall notices and remove any affected product in a timely manner to ensure that all product on our shelves is safe to consume.”
