Quote:

eople with allergies to milk or soy are being urged to avoid eating some Frito Lay Cheetos products because the milk and soy is not declared on the label.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the affected products are the BBQ flavour Cheetos in a red bag and the hot flavour variety in a black bag.

The BBQ brand has a UPC code of 8-801062-289936 and the hot flavour brand, also in an 88-gram bag, bears a UPC code of 8-801062-380015.

The CFIA says the made-in-Korea product have been distributed in Ontario and Manitoba.

It surprised me that these Cheetos were made in Korea. When I shared it on FB the image had Korean print on it. Wonder if they are only sold in specific stores? The image did not look like Cheetos on our store shelves in Manitoba.

I am concerned about big companies contracting out and then importing under their name but with different policies, level of care with labeling. In the asian store near us I noticed a few big names but with asian characters on the labeling and then a sticker slapped on top in english listing ingredients. This is very un nerving as one, what if the wrong sticker is put on, do they understand the need for complete labelling as well as do they follow the same may contain quality that say that exact same company name would use if processed in Canada.

I would like to see the package and see if it is clearly marked that it is made in Korea.

We no longer buy canned mushrooms as they are all made in China. Relish is difficult to find that isn't made in India.

I only know the policies of Canada and US and will rarely buy food made elsewhere.

I agree Walooet. The only thing I will buy at this store now (since DS's allergies )is the asian produce our grocery store doesn't carry. :|

I found this one a bit funny since when would someone with a milk allergy ever consider buying Cheetos? Cheetos = cheese, right?
