Some Lotte-brand snacks recalled in Canada

Canadians with almond, egg, milk, peanut or soy allergies are being warned not to eat certain Lotte-brand products because of a labeling error.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said Lotte-brand Kancho snacks and Margaret cookies might contain allergens that are not listed on the label.

The CFIA said the recalled products are known to have been distributed in Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia, but they might have also been nationally.

The importer is voluntarily recalling the affected products from the marketplace. The CFIA said it is monitoring the effectiveness of the recall.
