Canada and the United States are still recovering after romaine lettuce was recalled due to E. coli outbreaks in November, and now a few more vegetables are joining the list of recalls.
Health Canada announced over the weekend that certain types of cauliflower, red leaf lettuce, and green leaf lettuce are being recalled, specifically products from Adam Bros. Farming Inc. of Santa Maria, California.
The agency says that Ontario, Nova Scotia, Quebec, PEI, and Newfoundland are all being affected, and possibly other provinces.
The products have been distributed at Courchesne Larose Ltd. in Anjou, Quebec, Dominion Citrus in Toronto, Fresh Taste Produce Limited in Milton, Ont. and Fruits et Legumes Gaetan Bono Inc., in Montreal.
So far there have been no reported illnesses associated with this outbreak, but the agency warns that even though food may not smell or look spoiled it could still make you ill. Symptoms can include, nausea, vomiting, mild and severe abdominal cramps, and watery or bloody diarrhea.
Health Canada recommends throwing out any products you suspect are contaminated.
