Flour product recall expanded

A flour recall by Robin Hood last month has expanded to include a number of other products.

They include one-kilogram bags of Brodie self-raising cake and pastry flour, Creative Baker all-purpose flour in 20-kilogram bags, Creative Baker whole wheat flour in 10-kilogram packages, and Golden Temple Sooji creamy wheat in two-kilogram packages. All have various best-before dates.

The recall initially affected Robin Hood flour in 10-kilogram bags but the CFIA now says the recall includes Robin Hood flour in one-kilogram bags with best-before dates of April 14, 15 and 18, 2018.

All recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store according to CFIA.

There has been 26 new cases of people being infected with E. coli in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Alberta and Newfoundland and Labrador after the initial recall.

No deaths have been reported, but at least six people were hospitalized. The CFIA says there are no reported illnesses associated with the products added to the expanded recall.

Two Alberta law firms announced this week they were filing a class-action lawsuit on behalf of people who bought or consumed Robin Hood flour and became ill.
