Consumers with allergies to milk protein should avoid certain imported food products, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency says.
The products, imported from Singapore and Malaysia, failed to declare milk protein on their labels.
Included in the recall are certain coffee mixtures, teas and cereal beverages manufactured by Aik Cheong, Honsei, Gold Kili and Vitamax.
The CFIA is monitoring the effectiveness of the voluntary recall and is conducting an investigation. There have been no reports of associated illness.
These products may cause a serious or life-threatening reaction in people with milk protein allergies, the agency said.
