with allergies to egg and milk proteins not
to consume certain Worthington Vegetable

and milk proteins, which are not declared
on the label.
The affected product, Worthington Vegetable
Skallops, is packaged in a 1 LB. 4 oz can
with a green label and a UPC 28989 23303.
Only cans with a manufacturing code beginning
with 10055CS SK stamped on the bottom of
the cans are included in this alert.

in Oshawa and Toronto, Ontario, and may have
also been sold in other provinces.
There have been no reported illnesses associated
with the consumption of this product.

serious or life-threatening reaction in persons
with allergies to egg or milk proteins.
This CFIA alert is initiated in response
to a recall by Worthington Foods, Battle
Creek, MI, USA. According to Worthington
Foods, the recall was initiated after it
was discovered that the label for Worthington
Skallops, which does not declare egg or milk,
was mistakenly applied to a limited number
of cans containing veggie hot dog type product
containing egg and milk.
