Return affected jars to the Superstore

Customers are cautioned not to eat the 650 millilitre container of PC White Corn Black Bean Mild Salsa or the 430 millilitre PC Salsa Mild sold by the Atlantic Superstore because they may contain plastic.

Loblaw Companies Ltd. — which owns the Atlantic Superstores — is advising the public not to eat certain salsa products because they may contain pieces of plastic.

Both the 650 millilitre container of PC White Corn Black Bean Mild Salsa and the 430 millilitre PC Salsa Mild are affected by the recall.

Loblaw says it has removed all affected lots of the product from stores as a precaution, adding no consumer complaints or injuries have been reported.

The products were sold across the country in a variety of retail outlets.

Customers can return the products to the Superstore and receive a full refund, or they can call 1-888-495-5111 for more information.

      There is a direct correlation between the cost of food and whether or not it has nutritional value. All cheap foods and food stuffs are cheap because if you were educated about it (if you knew what you were eating) you would not feed it to an animal let alone eat it yourself. There is no one watching over the hen house and the wolves are out in force.

    Not to mention all the other nasty additives it might contain, who eats this overpriced crappy 'food' anyway?

    FOOD SECURITY, FOOD SECURITY, FOOD SECURITY. Loblaws is telling you this in an attempt to curtail or minimize any potential lawsuits. They are not doing it because they are a GOOD CORPORATE CITIZEN. They are doing it to maintain or maximize profits. Let me ask you this, with approximately 3 days of food in the stores, mostly everything these days gets trucked in, MR GHIZ, WHERE IS OUR FOOD SECURITY. As corners get cut in the quest for higher profits do you think we will be be better fed or worse fed in the future. Food security means having our food sources not only protected but increased to higher production levels. This would have an additional benefit, to lower prices. Most people today could not take care of themselves if they had to, myself included.

      Tired of Mr Kays using this public forum to attack Mr Ghiz and everything else. Please find a better forum for this.
