Fraser Health has issued a notice that says the hampers with contaminated candy containers were given to people in Port Moody, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and surrounding villages.
It says anyone who has received those hampers should immediately discard the containers and keep them away from children and pets.
The camphor mothballs are round and white, and come individually wrapped in clear cellophane.
Anyone who has eaten the candy mixture, which was distributed within the last two weeks from a Port Moody food bank, is being asked to contact the B.C. Drug and Poison Information Centre.
The health authority says camphor ingestion can cause vomiting, seizures, shortness of breath, abdominal discomfort and irritation or burning of the mouth and throat.
