Canadian Food Inspection Agency's (CFIA) Investigation into E. coli O121 in Flour and Flour Products

April 25, 2017 - The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is working with the Public Health Agency of Canada and other federal and provincial public health partners to investigate an outbreak of Escherichia coli, called E. coli O121.

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.
