The OASG has a page about how to sign up for allergy alerts. Rather than re-typing all the info, I am pointing people to that page at ... page&pid=5

If you know of other organizations that provide alerts, please let me know and we'll update the OASG alerts info page.

I recently found out that CFIA has federal jurisdiction but not provincial so...if a product is made and sold only within a province, it falls under the provincial regulating body. Most provinces have opted to provide notification through CFIA's food recall and allergy alerts service. Quebec is the only province (currently) who instead, issues their own alert.

You can sign up for the CFIA's food recall and allergy alerts e-mail notification service, and any of our other notification services, on our website at: ... sube.shtml

As for Quebec, you will need to sign up with the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPAQ) who is responsible for the initial investigation of all consumer complaints concerning food.

You can contact MAPAQ at: ... ments.aspx
or by telephone at: 1-800-463-5023.
