The company also announced the news in a separate Facebook post.

The news comes days after a food handler at the Real Canadian Superstore location on Oxford Street East and Gammage Street tested positive on a presumptive coronavirus test.

The worker, the Middlesex-London Health Unit said Sunday, worked in the store’s bakery between May 20 and 23. Customers who purchased baked goods that were store-prepared or store-packaged during that time were advised to toss the products in the garbage.

It was the second case to be confirmed both at the location and in the store’s bakery.
