Food that is contaminated with pathogenic E. coli bacteria does not look, smell, or taste different, and the texture of the food remains the same. Symptoms of an E. coli infection include nausea, vomiting, a mild fever, severe and painful abdominal cramps, and watery or bloody diarrhea. People usually start getting sick a few days up to a week after eating food contaminated with this pathogen.

This recall was triggered by a recall in another country. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is conducting an investigation which may lead to the recall of other products. The government is also making sure that this product is removed from the marketplace and no longer available to consumers.
