Pamana brand Fruit Jelly Snacks and Sunwave brand Mini Fruit Jellies have been recalled by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) due to potential choking hazard.
The recalled products from Fortune Distribution Ltd. have been sold in Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario. There have been no reported choking incidents.
The products contain mini jelly cups about the size of coffee creamers, the CFIA said. Similar products have previously been implicated in choking deaths of children, as the jelly cups may become lodged in the throat and difficult to remove.
The recall was triggered by a recall in another country.
The CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products, and is verifying that the industry is removing recalled products from the marketplace.
