Ta'aman announced on Sunday evening that due to a human error, the company had mislabeled bottles of "canola" oil, Kikar Hashabbat reported.

According to the company, some bottles of sunflower oil were mislabeled as canola oil, posing a problem for individuals who may be sensitive to sunflowers and experience health difficulties as a result of the mistake.

Those wishing to return the oil and receive compensation for it may do so, the company said.

In a statement, the company wrote: "During an inspection conducted by the Health Ministry's Food Service of Ta'aman's canola oil, from the manufacturer: Kovensky Alvator of the Krasnodar region in Russia, and which was imported by Ta'aman Food Distribution Ltd. via Israbar Oils and Grains Ltd., bottles of sunflower oil were labeled as canola oil."

"The product is Ta'aman's purified canola oil, one liter, barcode 7290005437632, with an expiration date of April 16, 2021. It was this product which was the subject of confusion."

"In order to prevent any misleading of our customers, we are working to immediately collect all of the oil which is stocked by the distribution chains and by our customers who are interested in returning the product."

"We would like to emphasize that the oil is sunflower oil, and the mistake is only on the label itself. In coordination with the Health Ministry's Food Service, the Ta'aman company is collecting the products from the avenues of distribution.
