Posted October 01, 2018 12:29:18Tim Hortons is being accused of not serving Hawaiian food in a country where the popular restaurant chain operates in only eight countries.
The chain said it has already begun a full-scale recall of its Hawaiian menu, including the chicken sandwiches and the chicken fingers, which are made in Hawaii.
The US-based chain said the products were made in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Thailand.
The products, which were only available in the US, were being recalled due to the presence of lead levels exceeding safe levels, Tim Hortins said in a statement.
The company said the lead levels were determined by independent testing and did not reflect the results of any specific ingredient.
Tim Hortins also said it had been working with state health departments to help improve the health of its Hawaiians.
Tim Horton’s Hawaii menu is made with chicken and pineapple and features the traditional Hawaiian rice bowls and sauces.
The fast food chain said in the statement that it was working with local and national health authorities to identify all possible food-borne illness cases, and that the recall will be conducted in the affected regions.
