BRAND INSTANT PUDDING PRODUCTS

Toronto, November 29, 1999 - Kraft Canada is advising
consumers allergic to almond and/or pistachio nuts not to

they may potentially contain a small amount of almond and
pistachio nuts.

The company is taking the extra precaution of voluntarily
recalling the following four Jell-O Instant Pudding products
with the following code dates only, distributed nationally. The
code number is imprinted on the side panel.

These products were distributed to various stores across Ontario and Manitoba.

These products are being voluntarily recalled by the Canadian distributor, Churchill

This is an extension of the November 19, 1999 recall of roasted pig ears from two manufacturers

which purchases products for repackaging and distribution, is now recalling any pig ears that
may have originated from the affected lots in Quebec.

There have been no reported illnesses associated with these products. People may risk
bacterial infection by handling the treats directly or by contact with pets who have used the
treats.

Elderly people, young children and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at
risk. They should completely avoid handling the pet treats. Anyone who may have handled the
treats should wash their hands with warm water and soap.

Common symptoms of salmonella infection are nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.
More serious consequences are possible.
