Canada: Cumin and Cumin-containing products recall rescinded

Food Recall Warning - Rescindment of Food Recall Warnings (Allergen)
Cumin and Cumin-containing products recalled due to undeclared almond


The food recall warnings issued on March 20 and 22, 2015 are being rescinded. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is advising the public that there is no longer evidence to indicate that the cumin and cumin-containing products described below contain almond. Consequently, based on the information presently available, there is no evidence that these products could pose a risk to individuals allergic to almond.


The products were recalled as a result of laboratory testing indicating that they contained undeclared almond. However, additional testing has confirmed that the original laboratory results were false positives.


The false positives were confirmed based on new evidence regarding the cross-reactivity of mahaleb, a spice obtained from a specific species (Prunus mahaleb) of cherry seeds, with the almond allergen test kit. It is highly likely that the positive sample results for the ground cumin and cumin-containing products were due to mahaleb contamination and not almond.
The products affected by this rescindment are as follows:

Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness. Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk. Although infected pregnant women may experience only mild, flu-like symptoms, the infection can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn or even stillbirth. In severe cases of illness, people may die
There has been one reported illness associated with the consumption of these products.
