Warning issued for Îles-de-la-Madeleine lobster paste

The Quebec Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food is warning consumers not to eat a brand of lobster paste sold from an outlet on the Îles-de-la-Madeleine because safe consumption of the product cannot be ensured.

The warning issued for “Tomali de homard des Îles-de-la-Madeleine” applies to all items sold until July 16 by the Poissonnerie Unipêche M.D.M. ltée, located at 66 Quai Ave., in Paspébiac. The lobster paste is packaged in glass jars, and the label includes “Usine #FC-197” among the product information.

The ministry’s advisory warns that even if the product seems fresh and no suspicious odour is detected, it could still present a health risk and should be returned to the point of purchase.

No cases of illness or other ill effects caused by the product have been reported so far.
