CFIA warns Pidy brand Pur Mamba may contain toxin

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has issued a public advisory concerning Pidy brand Pur Mamba, a peanut butter pigment imported from Haiti, as it may contain aflatoxin.

Aflatoxin is a compound produced by certain fungi that can cause cancer, lead to liver damage and is sometimes fatal. CFIA is warning consumers not to consume the product.

Pidy brand Pur Mamba, which is sold in a one-pound plastic container with the UPC code 000000717267, is distributed in Quebec and Ontario.

The agency says the importer of the Pur Mamba is recalling the product voluntarily.
