The federal agency says all recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store.

After the initial recall, the agency said 26 cases of people being infected with   E-coli in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Alberta and Newfoundland, and Labrador.

No deaths have been reported, but at least six people required hospital care.

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


Recall details

Ottawa, April 12, 2017 – The food recall warning issued on April 4, 2017, has been updated to include additional product information. This additional information was identified during the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s (CFIA) food safety investigation.

Ardent Mills is recalling various brands of flour and flour products due to possible E. coli O121 contamination. Consumers should not consume the recalled products described below, with specific best before dates indicated under additional information.

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.

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.


This recall was triggered by findings by the CFIA during its investigation into a foodborne illness outbreak. The CFIA is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. If other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings.

The CFIA is verifying that the industry is removing recalled products from the marketplace.


There have been reported illnesses associated with flour; however, at this time, there have been no confirmed illnesses related to the products identified in this Food Recall Warning.
