CFIA-Undeclared Allergens in Drink Mixes - 2017-2018
The main objective of this survey was to obtain baseline information regarding the presence and levels of undeclared allergens in hot and cold powdered drink mix products. Of 360 samples tested, 25 were found to contain undeclared allergens including the milk proteins beta-lactoglobulin (BLG) and casein, as well as gluten, egg, and soy. Most positive results indicated the presence of gluten in cold drink mix products. 6 products were deemed to represent a health risk and were recalled. 2 hot drink mix products and 1 cold drink mix product were recalled for undeclared gluten, 2 cold drink mix products were recalled for undeclared milk, and 1 hot drink mix product was recalled for undeclared soy.
