Flour Recall Expands Again

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has broadened a national flour recall over further fears of E. coli contamination.
The initial recall issued on March 28 applied only to Robin Hood flour sold in four provinces in Western Canada. The inspection agency extended the recall countrywide a week later.
On Wednesday, CIFA widened the recall to include products sold under the Brodie, Creative Baker and Golden Temple brands, as well as Robin Hood.
“Ardent Mills is recalling various brands of flour and flour products due to possible E. coli O121 contamination. Consumers should not consume the recalled products,” reads the recall notice on the CIFA website.
The recalled products include:
– Brodie self-raising cake and pastry flour, 1 kg. Production code 6 291 548 with best-before date of Jan. 17, 2018. UPC 0 59000 01484 5.

According to CIFA, the recall was triggered during its investigation into a food-borne illness outbreak. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store.
At least 26 people across Canada have been infected with the dangerous bacteria. Two Alberta law firms announced this week they were filing a class-action lawsuit on behalf of people who bought or consumed Robin Hood flour and became ill.
Symptoms of E. coli poisoning can include nausea, vomiting, mild to severe abdominal cramps and watery to bloody diarrhea.
