Green Food Bags Delivered On Tuesday April, 19, 2016 Are Being Recalled Due To Possible Health Risks

Onerahto:kha/ April 19, 2016

Please be advised that the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne Department of Health considers the safety of Community members one of our highest priorities. For this reason we have chosen to voluntarily recall the green food bags that were distributed on April 19, 2016. 

The green food bags are being recalled due to the possibility that some bags may have contaminated produce, which poses potential risk.

The community members who picked up the green food bags TODAY from the St. Regis Recreation center and Snye location should not eat the food items in it and discard the bags. 

Please remember that all produce should always be washed before consuming. We also recommend hand washing for the purpose of infection control.

The community members with questions may call the community health office at 613-575-2341 Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for any questions or concerns they may have.
