When in doubt, please contact the manufacturer for specific product information.

According to the CFIA, Vegpro International Inc. has recalled certain batch/lots of Compliments branded, Fresh Attitude branded, President’s Choice branded and Your Fresh Market branded Salads from the Canadian marketplace due to suspected plastic fragment contamination.
