Consumer Kashrut Alerts

Consumer Advisory - CFIA advises consumers to use caution with infant formula products due to potential product substitution and/or tampering

August 11, 2016 - CFIA:
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has become aware of a report from a Walmart store located in Kanata, Ontario of tampering by product substitution in an infant formula product. This type of issue is not typically associated with the manufacturing process but can occur occasionally when a consumer returns altered products to the retail store for a refund.
The infant formula product had an outer container which appeared intact but the product inside the inner packages had been substituted. There has been no illness associated with this complaint.
Consumers using infant formulas should examine the packaging material to ensure that the security seal is intact and has not been altered or the product substituted. If you have product that appears to have been altered, do not use or consume it and contact your local law enforcement authority or the CFIA.
