By CCA National Office

April 6, 2018. Mississauga, ON. Sobeys Inc. is recalling Sensations by Compliments Brand Pecan-Crusted Cheesecake Collection (340 gm) from the marketplace because it contains wheat which is not declared on the label.

It is also declared as gluten-free under the Gluten-Free Certification Program and carries the GFCP Trademark. The CFIA has advised that people who have an allergy to wheat, celiac disease or other gluten-related disorders should not consume the recalled product described in the recall notice at http://www.inspection.gc.ca/about-the-cfia/newsroom/food-recall-warnings/complete-listing/2018-04-5/eng/1522942126471/1522942126923

There was one reported illness, but it is not yet known if it was an allergic response to the wheat which can be the result from extremely small amounts (i.e. there is no allowed threshold) or celiac/gluten sensitivity for which a threshold exists of <20 ppm. Regardless, if you have a concern with gluten or wheat, the CFIA recall notice advises that these recalled products should not be consumed. They should be returned to the store where they were purchased or thrown out.

The Canadian Celiac Association (CCA) and the Allergen Control Group (ACG) are jointly making the following statements:

  • ACG administers the GFCP and has been investigating this event since being informed by the manufacturer on April 4, 2018, before the recall was deemed necessary by the CFIA. The manufacturer reported that the source of the wheat was identified as a human error occurring at the time of manufacture and isolated to three lots. Beyond the recall notice to warn consumers, these products are in the process of being rapidly being removed from the market as well as out of the distribution chain. Corrections have been made to the manufacturer’s procedures and these will be verified as being in place before any new production of this product is released to the marketplace.
  • The Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP) is a voluntary program designed for manufacturers and brand owners committed to producing safe and reliable gluten-free products. The program combines stringent; risk-based gluten-free requirements with globally recognized food safety management systems, which exceed government requirements in both Canada and the United States by providing preventive controls. These systems are verified by an annual robust, third-party facility audit process which ensures continued compliance.
  • Unfortunately, there is no such thing as “zero risk” and this is the first recall affecting a GFCP product after nearly eight (8) years and literally millions of servings of gluten-free products consumed. Consumers across North American can rest assured that this event is being handled with the highest due diligence to ensure that the gluten-free products they or their families are consuming meet the government’s strictest gluten-free requirements when they see the GFCP Trademark.
  • The Canadian Celiac Association believes that all Canadians have the right to safe food. It worked with the ACG to develop the GFCP to be credibly applied in a marketplace to protect consumers who have no other choice but to follow a gluten-free diet for life. The CCA believes that the GFCP provides the highest level of scrutiny to help create trust and build brand loyalty with customers as well as expanded choices. It also provides a clear and easy-to-recognize certification trademark on packaging versus those products which display unsubstantiated self-declared gluten-free claims or marks or solely rely on end product testing. However, should an event happen, reducing and eliminating further risk to consumers is paramount. We are confident that the necessary improvements will be made at the manufacturing level before releasing any new Sensations By Compliments Brand Pecan-Crusted Cheesecake Collection (340 gm) production which carries the GFCP Trademark.
