Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following expanded heath alert is from the CFIA on June 27, 2007.
The public advisory issued on June 22, 2007, has been expanded to advise consumers of the potential distribution of three additional products which were not distributed by Hershey and therefore not included in the November 12, 2006 original recall. In addition to the list of recalled products included in the Health Hazard alert previously issued on November 12, 2006, the following products are affected. These products also bear the codes beginning with numbers ranging from 6417 to 6455 inclusive.

  1. Reese Honey Roasted Peanut Butter Cups - 51 g
  2. Oh Henry! Rocky Road bar - 60 g
  3. Pot of Gold All Nut Collection - 245 g
Various Hershey chocolate products manufactured by Hershey Canada Inc. bearing codes beginning with numbers ranging from 6417 to 6455 inclusive were recalled for possible Salmonella contamination on November 12, 2006. For a complete list of recalled products associated with the affected codes see the CFIA website at http://www.inspection.gc.ca/english/corpaffr/recarapp/2006/20061112e.shtml. As a result of an ongoing investigation into recent incidents involving the theft of recalled Hershey Chocolate products in Toronto, Ontario and the discovery of a quantity of products between the Lindsay and Hamilton area, the CFIA has reason to believe that some recalled Hershey products may have re entered the marketplace. The affected products may be in circulation through a number of independent distributors, private wholesalers, liquidators, and flea-markets operating in Ontario.

The following heath alert is from the CFIA on June 15, 2007.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and Hershey Canada are advising the public that certain Hershey chocolate products previously recalled on November 12, 2006, may have been recently distributed to retail outlets. Consumers are advised to check their Hershey products to ensure they do not bear codes that begin with numbers ranging from 6417 to 6455 inclusive. On Tuesday, June 12, 2007, Toronto Police arrested two men in Toronto in possession of recalled Hershey’s chocolate products. As a result of a consumer complaint, on June 15, 2007 a number of Hershey chocolate products were discovered for sale at a retail store in Lindsay, Ontario. The Police investigation into the matter is continuing and it is unclear at this time if the two incidents are related.

The following heath alert is from the CFIA on November 12, 2006.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and Hershey Canada Inc. are warning the public not to consume certain chocolate products described below because these products may be contaminated with Salmonella. Hershey Canada Inc., Mississauga, Ontario, is voluntarily recalling these products from the marketplace. This recall does not affect Halloween or Christmas items. However, consumers are advised to check the codes identified below. The CFIA is monitoring the effectiveness of the recall. Only products with date codes from 6417 to 6455, produced from October 15 to November 10, are affected by this alert. The date codes can be found on the back of each unit. A list can be found at http://www.inspection.gc.ca/english/corpaffr/recarapp/2006/20061112e.shtml.
