Expatriate Healthcare News: Food product recalled over peanut allergy fears

Expat health insurance policyholders who have peanut allergies have been warned not to eat a certain health food product.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has announced a recall of certain Quaker Chewy Granola Bars because some of the products lack allergen advice about the presence of peanuts.

Value packs containing Dipps granola bars have been taken off shelves in Canada Safeway stores and the agency is monitoring the situation.

One reaction has been reported so far but the affected product might have been distributed further after the original recall in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario.

Expat medical insurance policyholders who have bought one of the value packs will find the bars inside carry the correct information about peanuts, but the outer packet does not.

Peanut allergies can cause anaphylaxis and some of those who suffer from the condition can develop symptoms just by standing near an individual who has recently eaten the nut.
