The operator is voluntarily recalling the products in question. He agreed with the MAPAQ and the Food Inspection Division of the City of Montreal to disseminate this notice as a precautionary measure. It should be noted that no case of illness associated with the consumption of these foods has been reported to MAPAQ to date.

People who have a unit of these products in their possession are therefore advised not to consume it. They must either return it to the establishment where they bought it or throw it away. Even if the products do not show any signs of spoilage or a suspicious odor, consuming them may represent a health risk. Symptoms of Bacillus cereus poisoning can occur between 1.5 and 5 hours after consuming the contaminated food and manifest as nausea and vomiting. However, they can also appear 8 to 16 hours after consuming the food. In this case, the main symptoms are nausea, abdominal cramps, diarrhea and sometimes vomiting. Usually, symptoms go away within 24 hours.
