WATCH: Here are some of the procedures food inspection agencies follow when deciding whether or not to recall a product – Nov 22, 2018

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is asking for consumers to check the best-before date of President’s Choice (PC) brand milk chocolate-covered raisins due to the possibility of undeclared nuts, prompting a recall of the product.

According to the CFIA, the sweet treats impacted are 908-gram bags that have a best-before date of July 8, 2024 and a Universal Product Code (UPC) of 0 60383 98203 4.

The agency says the recall is because the product may contain almonds, which have not been declared on the label and are especially a concern for those who may be allergic or have a sensitivity to them.
