The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is warning the public not to consume apricot kernel products packed by Wah Yan Tong because they, too, contain dangerous levels of a toxin that can cause acute cyanide poisoning.
The brand joins a national recall list that includes Our Father’s Farm and Organic Traditions. This most recent recall covers Bitter Apricot Kernels (UPC 6 28110 69950 3) and Sweet Apricot Kernels (UPC 6 28110 69948 0) sold in 150-gram bags.
This recall was triggered by CFIA test results. The CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products.
There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of this product.
