A brand of veggie burgers — Kirkland Signature brand Harvest Burgers — are being recalled because of the possibility they contain pieces of metal.

A release from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the Belmont Meat Products burgers were sold in B.C., Ontario and Quebec, and could have been distributed in other areas.

The recalled products came in 1.7 kg packages with a best before date of Apr. 23, 2019.

The recall was prompted by a consumer complaint, the CFIA said, though there are no reports of injury or illness.

The CFIA said it is conducting an investigation into food safety, which "may lead to the recall of other products." 

The food inspection agency also said it is "verifying that industry is removing recalled product from the marketplace."
