The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is recalling a type of chicken burgers sold on P.E.I. due to a potential allergen.
Eerie Meat Products Ltd. issued a recall for Butcher’s Selection brand Stampede Chicken Burgers because they may contain egg, which is not declared on the label.
In addition to Prince Edward Island, the chicken burgers are also distributed in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Quebec.
There have been no reported reactions associated with the product.
The recall was triggered by CFIA test results and the agency is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products.
If other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public.
The CFIA is verifying that the chicken burgers are being recalled from the marketplace.
The CFIA initially issued the recall warning on March 16, but has now updated that warning to include additional distribution information that was identified during a food safety investigation.
People with an allergy to egg should not consume the recalled product, and the CFIA advises the public to check for recalled products in their home.
Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.
If you have an allergy to egg, do not consume the recalled product as it may cause a serious or life-threatening reaction, the agency says.
