The Public Health Agency of Canada says there have been 25 cases of E. coli infections since Tuesday’s recall of Robin Hood all-purpose flour.
Of the 25, 12 were in B.C. 4 in both Alberta and Saskatchewan, and 5 in Newfoundland and Labrador.
The bags were sold in B.C. Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. Officials say the product was produced at a mill in Saskatoon.
Six people needed to be transported to the hospital, but officials say they have either recovered or are recovering.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency, who discovered the contamination, says any 10-kilogram bags of Robin Hood all-purpose flour with a best-before date of April 17, 2018 should be thrown out or returned to the store.
