      The co-owner of Go Max Go Foods is asking customers to not be alarmed
      by a Canadian recall affecting the U.S.-based company’s popular line
      of vegan chocolate bars.

      Scott Ostrander told the Straight that the issue is Canada’s rules
      concerning what products can be labelled “dairy-free”. According to
      him, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency objected to that label on Go
      Max Go candy bars after noticing that the packaging warns that trace
      amounts of dairy may be present due to the use of shared equipment in
      manufacturing.

      “The product is the same as it always was,” Ostrander said today
      (November 29) by phone from Santa Fe, New Mexico. “There’s no dairy
      ingredients in it. Any dairy that might be in there is just miniscule
      trace amounts—just like the statement we have underneath our
      ingredients states.”

      On Wednesday (November 28), the CFIA warned that Go Max Go’s Mahalo,
      Snap, Buccaneer, Jokerz, and Twilight candy bars and Cleo’s peanut
      butter cups may contain milk which is not listed on the ingredients
      label.

      The agency issued an allergy alert for products bearing the following
      lot codes (UPC): Cleo’s (8 99033 00204 0), Mahalo (8 99033 00203 3),
      Snap (8 99033 00205 7), Buccaneer (8 99033 00202 6), Jokerz (8 99033
      00200 2), and Twilight (8 99033 00201 9).
