Soy, one of the nine most common food allergens, was not listed on the label as an ingredient in Cuisine Bernart brand cabbage rolls being sold in retail markets in Quebec.
That has brought a public warning for people with allergies to soy not to consume the Cuisine Bernart brand cabbage rolls and a recall from Cuisine Bern-Art Inc., the Quebec-based manufacturer.

The affected cabbage rolls containing soy protein might have been repackaged at retail stores or sold from deli counters.
If the original product identity and Best Before code is not evident; the manufacturer advises checking with your retailer or supplier to determine if the product is affected.
The cabbage rolls were distributed only in Quebec.
There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products.
