Product Recall

Kinnikinnick has recalled a number of products because of  unlabelled milk in the products. There is no gluten in the products.

The  recalled products are Kinnikinnick Original Homestyle Waffles;  Kinnikinnick Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Homestyle Waffles; Kinnikinnick  Kinni-Kwik Bread & Bun Mix; Kinnikinnick Panko Style Bread Crumbs;  Kinnikinnick Pancake & Waffle Mix.

Consumers with a MILK allergy should return these products to the place  they purchased the product; customers who do not have a milk allergy can consume  these products in safety.

It should be noted that this problem was identified by  Kinnikinnick’s own internal ingredient testing problem. Kinnikinnick determined  that another ingredient contained milk allergens that were not listed by the  manufacturer of that ingredient.

Kinnikinnick has posted details on their blog (http://blog.kinnikinnick.com/2014/01/routine-testing-of-ingredients.html)  and you can find a full list of all the affected products on the CFIA web  site:  http://www.inspection.gc.ca/about-the-cfia/newsroom/food-recall-warnings/complete-listing/2014-01-10/eng/1389416979298/1389417006118

This  recall may lead to recalls of other products who use the same ingredient in  their products. We will send notices of any other high priority  recalls.

We Welcome Comments in our Restaurants/Shopping Stores List

We have updated our Restaurants and Shopping Menu to enable submission of comments. Please feel free to leave comments about the establishments featured in our list, especially closures. This will enable us to provide an up-to-date list of restaurants and shopping stores.

Timmy’s Introduces GF Snack

For those of us with celiac disease, grabbing a quick prepared snack when we’re on-the-go is not a simple task, as hidden sources of gluten in product ingredients are always top-of-mind.  To help make that choice easier, Tim Hortons is now offering a new Gluten-Free Coconut Macaroon – the first menu item in a Canadian quick service restaurant to be certified gluten-free through the Canadian Celiac Association (CCA) Gluten-Free Certification Program.

The new Gluten-Free Coconut Macaroon is a meringue-style cookie made with real coconut and drizzled with milk chocolate, and is sold in a pre-wrapped two-piece package to avoid cross-contamination. It’s available at Tim Hortons restaurants across Canada for $1.29.
