A Canada-wide recall of flour due to E. coli contamination, first announced in March, has been extended again to include more brands.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) first recalled affected Robin Hood flour on sold in a number of provinces in Western Canada on March 28th. They eventually extended the recall to include the whole country.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s recall on March 28 affected Robin Hood flour sold in four provinces in Western Canada and was later expanded across the country.
Last week a number of new products were added to the recall, including a number of flour products produced by Ardent Mills in its Brampton facility.
A number of other items are being added to the recall list including Golden Temple, Creative Baker and other Robin Hood products.
The CFIA recommends that all affected products should be thrown in the garbage or returned to local stores.
So far no deaths have occurred due to the E. coli contamination, but a number of people have reported getting sick.
