MARKHAM RESIDENTS CAUTIONED TO INSPECT HALLOWEEN CANDY

Nov 01

TOWN OF MARKHAM RESIDENTS CAUTIONED TO INSPECT HALLOWEEN CANDY http://www.nestle.ca/en/PressRelease/Markham_Favourites.htm Toronto – October 22, 2010 – Nestlé Canada Inc. and Walmart Canada are advising residents of the Town of Markham, Ontario, that four packages of 94 count Nestlé Fav*rites snack size chocolate bars were found to contain candy not manufactured by Nestlé and some candy not sold by Walmart Canada. For example, one box contained Kit Kat bars manufactured and sold in the U.S., by another company. Unlike Nestlé Canada’s Fav*rites that are made in a peanut-free facility, the U.S. Kit Kat bars are manufactured in a facility that also processes peanuts, as indicated on the wrapper. These boxes were discovered at the Copper Creek Walmart in Markham, Ontario. All investigations by the appropriate authorities suggest that this is an isolated incident. There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of this product. Consumers are asked to check their packaging and ensure it contains only Nestlé branded products as indicated on the wrapper. As always, consumers are encouraged to read the ingredient list before consuming any product and parents are reminded to thoroughly check all Halloween candy. For more information, consumers can contact: Nestlé Consumer Services at 1-800-387-4636 between 9:00 am – 6:00 pm (EST) Monday to Friday. The line will also be open on October 23 and October 24 between 9:00 am – 6:00 pm (EST). Walmart Canada Customer Service at 1-800-328-0402 between 7:30 am – 5:30 pm (EST) Monday to Friday. Share...
