Food recall warning: Various brands of flour and flour productsIssued: Thursday, April 13, 2017
The food recall warning for Robin Hood brand All Purpose Flour has been expanded to include various brands of flour and flour products. Recalled products may be contaminated with E. coli O121. A complete list of recalled products is available on the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s website.
The Sudbury & District Health Unit is recommending that members of the public as well as food premises operators ensure that recalled products are not being used. Affected products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.
If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor. Food contaminated with E. coli O121 may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, mild to severe abdominal cramps and watery to bloody diarrhea. In severe cases of illness, some people may have seizures or strokes, need blood transfusions and kidney dialysis or live with permanent kidney damage. In severe cases of illness, people may die.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is conducting a food safety investigation which may lead to the recall of other products. Members of the general public as well as food premises operators are encouraged to sign up to receive email notifications of food recalls by visiting www.inspection.gc.ca or monitor the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) website in case of recall expansion.
