Longsheng (Canada) Agricultural Products Ltd. is recalling Golden Medal brand Enoki Mushroom from the marketplace due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. The recalled product has been sold in British Columbia and may have been distributed in other provinces and territories.

Undeclared Allergens

Lidl Northern Ireland is recalling Culinea Paella because it contains crustaceans, fish, milk and molluscs which are not mentioned in English on the label. This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to crustaceans, fish and molluscs, and/or anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents. In addition to this, the product contains cooking instructions which are not written in English on the label, making it a possible health risk if the product is not cooked correctly.

Cavendish Farms Corporation of Dieppe, New Brunswick, Canada, is recalling its Original Hash Brown Patties because they may contain undeclared wheat. People who have allergies to wheat or celiac disease run the risk of serious allergic reaction if they consume this product. These products are also sold and being recalled in numerous states in the US. Alongside this, the company’s Potato Patties are also being recalled because they contain wheat which is not declared on the label.
