Recalled products are to be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

Anyone who does have an allergy to egg or wheat, celiac disease, or another gluten-related disorder should not consume the product as it “may cause a serious or life-threatening reaction.”

According to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), the recall was triggered by a customer complaint.

The CFIA states that there has been “one reported reaction associated with consumption of the product.”
