Ottawa, June 2, 2017 - This food recall warning is issued to include products associated with recent flour recalls. This additional information was identified during the Canadian Food Inspection Agency's (CFIA) food safety investigation.
Harlan Bakeries - Edmonton is recalling various brands of pie and tart shells due to possible E. coli O121 contamination. Consumers should not consume the recalled products described below.
What you should do
If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor.
Check to see if you have recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.
It is not safe to taste or eat raw dough or batter regardless of the type of flour used, as raw flour can be contaminated with harmful bacteria such as E. coli O121. Food contaminated with E. coli O121 may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, mild to severe abdominal cramps and watery to bloody diarrhea. In severe cases of illness, some people may have seizures or strokes, need blood transfusions and kidney dialysis or live with permanent kidney damage. In severe cases of illness, people may die.
