Updated April 22, 2017 with additional recall information

The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) are still wrestling with the fallout from an outbreak of E. coli O121 illnesses that began in November 2016, has sickened 27 people in five provinces plus one visitor to Canada, and is on-going at this time.

The index case was reported the week of November 13, 2016; the most recent on the week of March 19, 2017. It can take several weeks between the date symptoms appear and the receipt of a report by PHAC.

It was not until March 28th that PHAC was able to report a link between the outbreak and flour. The first recall notice was posted on the CFIA website that same day, to be followed by three updates. The following is a listing of all of the flour products recalled by Smucker Foods of Canada Corp. and Ardent Mills (the manufacturer). The items are sorted alphabetically by brand and descriptive name.

Many of these products were sold in retail stores, including Costco Canada. Others (highlighted in orange) were supplied to hotels, restaurants and institutions. Links to the individual recall notices posted on the CFIA website are supplied at the bottom of this post.

Please check back periodically. This list will be updated whenever more recall information is released.
