Canada is now under a recall warning for a batch of Robin Hood all-purpose flour that may be contaminated with E. coli. At this time at least 25 cases of E. coli have been linked to the product. The original recall only included products in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland and Labrador.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the affected flour comes in 10-kilogram bags with a best-before date of April 17, 2018. The CFIA says the recall was expanded after a food safety investigation.
The CFIA says consumers should return products with lot codes containing BB/MA 2018 AL 17 and 6 291 548 and a UPC of 0 59000 01652 8.
No deaths have been reported. Most of those who became ill are men, with an average age of 24.
The CFIA warns that food contaminated with E. coli may be hard to detect as it does not look or smell spoiled, but can still make you sick.
