A recall expansion in Canada targets cookies specifically marketed for babies just beginning to consume solid food. The Mr. Christie’s brand arrowroot biscuits were first recalled Oct. 21 after consumers reported illnesses after eating them.
The recall expansion, posted Friday by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, did not provide any additional details about the reported illnesses. It repeated the advice to consumers to seek medical attention if they or their infants become ill after consuming the cookies.
“Consumers should not consume the recalled products described below. If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor,” the CFIA notice states.
“Check to see if you have recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.
The company initiated the recall Oct. 21 after reports of illnesses and an off taste. The CFIA is conducting an investigation. The Mr. Christie’s Arrowroot Biscuits were distributed to retailers nationwide by Mondelēz Canada of the multinational snack company Mondelēz International Inc.
