  1. This is not clear.
    ALL 350g packages Gorgonzola with THAT UPC code
    Or
    Only those with the SPECIFIC BB date if Feb 01/2023??

    Thanks

    • Hi Simon,
      As far as i can see it is only that product with UPC and date code and Lot Number L.: 2777001
      The affected product, sold in 350-gram packages, has UPC number 8 021398 400069 with a best-before date of Feb. 1, 2023. The CFIA are looking at other products as well but I have not seen any other recall notice yet.

      • Hi and thanks for replying.
        I meant the news items and releases do not make clear that *both* UPC *and* BB dates are required for the recalled items. I have two examples of that UPC but different BB dates. I think you’ll find everyone will not discern the specifics, and simply return any and *all* 350g samples. The company who makes/sells the cheese will suffer unintended losses because if the lack of clarity in the news releases and published words.
        Thanks for listening./reading.

  2. Hi Simon,

    I see what you mean it may be worth commenting on that to the CFIA

    Thanks for looking.
