Pretzels recalled because of melamine contamination

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is recalling OK OK Kaiser pretzels because tests show they are contaminated with melamine.

The pretzels are imported by Dai Jung Distributing, of Scarborough, Ont., and were distributed throughout Ontario. They include the Kaiser Strawberry Dressing Pretzel and the Kaiser Choco Dressing Pretzel.

No illnesses have been reported and the health risk associated with the contamination is considered to be low, Health Canada said.

The advisory is being issued as a result of the federal government's continuing investigation into milk products imported from China.

Melamine is a chemical compound used in a number of commercial and industrial applications. Canada does not allow its use as a food ingredient.
