The Quebec Ministery of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPAQ) is warning consumers with wheat allergies not consume the buckwheat bread from Boulangerie Le Marquis.

The product, a ministry alert says, may contain wheat without it being mentioned in the ingredients.

The recall is on the 425-gram products sold until Sep. 2, 2020.

The product was sold frozen throughout the Boulangerie Le Marquis chain in the Laurentians and Montreal area and includes the label "Le Marquis - Gluten Free."

The product was voluntarily recalled by the business, which has agreed to distribute warnings as a precaution.

There is no danger in consuming the product unless the person has a wheat allergy.

No case of illness has been reported to MAPAQ due to consumption of the bread in question.
