The operator is voluntarily recalling the products in question. It has agreed with MAPAQ to issue this warning as a precautionary measure. People who have one of these products in their possession and have not kept it in the freezer at all times since the time of purchase are advised not to consume it. They must return it to the establishment where they bought it or throw it away. Even if the affected products show no signs of tampering or suspicious odors, their consumption may represent a health risk.
