EXTENSION - ALERTE À L’ALLERGIE – PRÉSENCE DE CAJOUS DANS DU PESTO DE
MARQUE BERNI

OTTAWA, le 27 mai 2008 – La mise en garde publiée le 22 mai dernier a
été élargie pour inclure un nouveau produit, soit le Pesto al Basilico
de marque Berni vendu en pots de 520 g.

L’Agence canadienne d’inspection des aliments (ACIA) avise les
personnes allergiques aux cajous de ne pas consommer le pesto de marque Berni
décrit ci-dessous. L’étiquette des produits touchés déclare cajous avec
un terme français ‘anacardes’ qui n’est pas couramment reconnu au
Canada.

Tous les lots des produits suivants sont touchés par la présente mise
en garde :

Pesto al Pomodoro de marque Berni, un produit de l’Italie, vendu en
pots de 195 g portant les CUP 8 73186 00006 1 et 8 032589 960132,

On sait que les produits ont été distribués en Colombie-Britannique, en
Alberta, au Manitoba, en Ontario, au Québec, au Nouveau-Brunswick en
Nouvelle-Écosse et à Terre-Neuve, mais ils pourraient aussi l’avoir été
à l’échelle nationale.

Un cas de maladie associé à la consommation de ces produits a été
signalé.

La consommation de ces produits peut déclencher une réaction grave,
parfois mortelle, chez les personnes allergiques aux cajous.

L’importateur, Aurora Importing and Distributing Ltd. de Mississauga
(Ontario), retire volontairement du marché les produits touchés. L’ACIA
surveille l’efficacité du rappel.
