Robin Hood brand flour recall extended to eastern Canada

The recall of Robin Hood brand flour because of an E. coli outbreak in the four western provinces has been extended to Ontario and the rest of Canada to the east. The original recall issued last month by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency on 10-kilogram bags of flour was limited to B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. One illness has been confirmed from consuming the flour, and 24 other cases are being investigated.​Several of those who fell ill reported having contact with Robin Hood flour. Food inspection agency officials say any 10-kilogram bags of Robin Hood brand all-purpose flour with a best-before date of April 17, 2018, should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased. The recalled product’s UPC is 0 59000 01652 8.
