People with an allergy to wheat are being warned today (3 October) not to consume Canasoy brand Tamari Soy Sauce, as the product may contain wheat that is not shown on the label. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is overseeing a voluntary recall by the firm Canasoy Enterprises Ltd. of Vancouver, BC. The product sizes in question were distributed in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, and have been identified as:
500 ml – UPC 0 64165 15300 1
750 ml – UPC 0 64165 15302 5
1.9 litres – UPC 0 64165 15304 9
4 litres – UPC 0 64165 15306 3
So far one illness has been reported, and the CFIA is concerned that consumption of Tamari Soy Sauce by a person with a wheat allergy could cause a life-threatening reaction. Consumers can contact Canasoy Enterprises Ltd. on (604) 255-1304 (9:00 am – 5:00 pm PT) for more information.
