CANADA WIDE – The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has announced that Smucker Foods of Canada Corp. is recalling Robin Hood brand All Purpose Flour Original.

The recall is due to fears for E. Coli contamination in the flour.

Originally, Smucker had recalled their popular brand of flour on March 28, but only in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Alberta and British Columbia.

Only product with a best before date of April 17, 2018 (2018 AL 17) and the production code 6 291 548 is being recalled.

Anyone thinking that they have a bag of the recalled flour should throw it out or return it to the store where it was purchased.

Flour contaminated with E. Coli may not look bad or smell bad, but will still make consumers sick.

“Symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, mild to severe abdominal cramps and watery to bloody diarrhea,” stated the Canada Food Inspection Agency on their website. “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.”
