Lucerne Half and Half Recalled in Canada

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning people allergic to eggs not to eat Lucerne-brand 10 percent half and half cream due to a labeling error.

The CFIA said Lucerne Foods, a division of Canada Safeway Ltd., is voluntarily recalling the product because it might contain egg proteins not declared on its label, thereby posing a health risk for people allergic to eggs.

The federal agency said the recalled "Lucerne 10% Half and Half Cream" is sold in 1-liter paper cartons bearing a best before date of "NO26" and UPC 0 58200 07825 1. The product was distributed in Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia.
