The products subject to the alert bear establishment number “645″ inside the Canadian mark of inspection.

The alert was issued after the wafer supplier notified the company producing the tray packages that the wafers were recalled due to the missing allergen declaration.

No bad reactions of eating the products have been reported, the FSIS said, but anyone who purchased the products are urged not to eat them, but to throw them away or return them.

Consumers with questions about the alert can contact Maple Lea Foods Inc. at 1-877-526-4520.
