    A Canadian dairy co-operative says it is recalling two types of ice cream sandwiches over concerns there might be metal particles in the product.

    A statement from Agropur released Friday says the sandwiches were sold in Quebec, Ontario and Atlantic Canada.

    The statement says the Iceberg brand sandwiches sold in boxes of 8 and the Originale Augustin brand sold in boxes of 30 are being recalled.

    It says the Canadian Food Inspection Agency is overseeing the voluntary recall.

    Agropur says they havenít received any reports of injuries.

    The co-operative is asking for the product to be taken off shelves and customers can return the boxes to stores for a full refund.

    Two brands of ice cream sandwiches have been recalled by a Canadian dairy company over concerns there may be fine metal particles inside them.

    The ice cream sandwiches were sold in Quebec, Ontario and Atlantic Canada, Agropur Cooperative said in a news release on Friday.

    The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said people should not eat Iceberg or Originale Augustin brand Mega Sandwiches sold in boxes of 8 and 30, in a release on Saturday.

    People are advised to throw the products out or return them to stores, said the CFIA on its website.

    Agropur said people who return the product can get a full refund from stores.

    There have been no reports of injuries or discomfort associated with the products, the company said.

    CFIA said it is checking that stores are removing the products and conducting a food safety investigation.

    There have been no reports of injuries or discomfort associated with the products, the company said.
    The particles probably bind to the sticky sandwich part.
