From the canadian press:
“OTTAWA — The Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Loblaws Inc. have warned the public not to consume certain pear juices for toddlers that may be contaminated with arsenic.
The CFIA says in a news release that there have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of the products.
The two products listed in the warning are the one-litre President’s Choice Organics Pear Juice from Concentrate for Toddlers and the 128-millilitre Beech Nut Pear Juice from concentrate with Vitamin C added.
The products have been distributed across the country, the agency says.
Arsenic is a toxic heavy metal that may be carcinogenic and may pose developmental risks to children.
Loblaws Inc, has voluntarily recalled the affected products and the CFIA is monitoring the effectiveness of the recall, the release says.”
