Prince George, B.C. – The Public Health Agency of Canada has issued a recall for Robin Hood brand All Purpose due to an E. coli infection.

There has been one reported illness associated with the consumption of this product.

It has been distributed in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. The investigation is ongoing and it is possible that additional products linked to the outbreak investigation may be identified.

Canadians are advised not to use or eat any Robin Hood All Purpose Flour, Original sold in 10 kilogram bags with a code containing BB/MA 2018 AL 17 and 6 291 548.

Restaurants and retailers are also being asked to take note of the recall.

If you think you became sick after consuming this product you are asked to consult with your doctor. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

Symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, mild to severe abdominal cramps and watery to bloody diarrhea.

In severe cases, some people may have seizures or strokes, need blood transfusions and kidney dialysis or live with permanent liver damage.


Robs from the rich to give to the poor does he?

    Less his overheads and administrative costs. And judging from the girth of Friar Tuck and size of Little John just keeping them and the rest of his ‘Merrie Men’ fed and otherwise merrie must have been considerable. Not likely they were growing their own grub in the middle of Sherwood Forest.

      Good one!

Why tell people to throw it out? Why would someone throw money in the garbage? Return it.

    “Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.” is what they said. People who don’t want to return it need to throw it out. I would probably throw it out instead of returning it. It’s not worth it to make a special trip to the store and holding on to it for a week or so until I need to go in could be trouble.
