The recall covers a number of different products that were distributed in Manitoba, Ontario and Nunavut, and may have been sold in other provinces and territories.

A full list of the affected products is available on the recall and alerts section of the Health Canada website.

Consumers are advised to either throw the product out or return it to the place of purchase.

As of Tuesday, there had been no reported illnesses linked to the product.
