UPDATE to FEBRUARY 26, 2015 NOTICE

BEVERAGE RECALL: POTENTIAL UNDECLARED ALLERGEN – TREE NUT

 

July 31, 2015

 

As a follow-up to its February 26, 2015 Notice, Cott Beverages Inc. (“Cott”) is issuing this supplementary communication to again notify the public that select energy drinks and sparkling water manufactured and retailed by Cott may have contained a trace amount of Tree Nuts, (in particular, walnut), that were not declared on the label(s). Cott initiated a voluntary withdrawal when it was notified of this event earlier, and this communication is being issued again in the interest of public safety.

 

Those individuals who have a severe sensitivity to Tree Nuts (in particular walnut), may run a risk of serious or life-threatening reaction if they consume any of these products. However, no illnesses have been reported to date in connection with any of these products.

 

Cott has been working with its retail partners to verify that all affected product was removed from sale and destroyed when this situation was discovered earlier this year.  In order to ensure that 100 percent of these products that may have already been sold prior to removal from sale are returned, Cott is again asking anyone who may still be in possession of these product to please return it to the point of purchase for a full refund. 

 

The recalled products and the corresponding product Date Codes impacted can be found below. 

 

PLEASE NOTE, new replacement product manufactured with compliant ingredients have been distributed in the marketplace with the same label, but a new Date Code, and is not impacted by this product withdrawal.
