The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the recall was triggered by a safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products.
Cronobacter can cause rare bloodstream and central nervous system infections and has been associated with a severe intestinal infection and blood poisoning, especially in newborns.
Cronobacter is not commonly linked to human illness.
The recalled product should be thrown out or returned to the store where it was purchased.
