Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) issued a recall on frozen mango products from Nature’s Touch Frozen Food Inc:

“The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has issued a food recall warning for various frozen mango products from Nature’s Touch Frozen Food Inc. due to a possible Hepatitis A contamination. In addition, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) has declared an outbreak of Hepatitis A infections occurring in Québec and Nova Scotia with exposure to frozen mangoes identified as the likely source of the outbreak. The investigation is ongoing, and cases of infection continue to be reported to PHAC.

To date there have been no cases identified in Ontario, but everyone is advised to check their freezers to see if they have any of the recalled food products in their home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased:

  • Nature’s Touch frozen mangoes 2 kg; UPC: 873668001807; Best before 2022 NO 09
  • Compliments frozen mango mania 600 g; UPC: 055742504309; Best before 2022 NO 10/2022 DE 18
  • Irresistibles frozen mango chunks 600 g; UPC: 059749876001; Best before 2022 NO 10
  • President’s Choice frozen mango chunks 600 g; UPC: 060383993870; Best before 2022 NO 06/2022 NO 10

If you suspect you have consumed the recalled products within the last 14 days, vaccines are available through your local public health unit. Hepatitis A vaccines are safe, effective, and can protect you from developing an infection if you receive it within 14 days of exposure.

If you have symptoms consistent with Hepatitis A such as fever, loss of appetite, fatigue, nausea and jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes), please consult your health care provider.

We will continue to work closely with local public health units and PHAC to monitor the situation in the province and take any necessary action to keep people living in Ontario healthy and safe.”
