Is this a different recall, or an extenstion of the same one? I got it this morning too.

I think this is an extension of the previous. I heard something about it on CTV news in Winnipeg, but didn't catch it, flipped too fast. Here's something. http://winnipeg.ctv.ca/servlet/an/local ... nnipegHome
Quote:
The affected product is the 364-gram Quaker Chewy Granola Bars Value Packs, which were recalled on Nov. 24.
The agency says one person became ill from eating a granola bar that potentially came from a mislabelled Quaker Chewy Granola Bars Value Pack.

How is it that Safeway stores in so many provinces all ignored the recall?????????
Too lazy to pull the product, didn't 'get' the notices, didn't think it serious enough to act on, what's their excuse. :damnedcomputer
