The products were sold in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, PEI, and possibly nationally.

Consumers are being instructed to throw these products out immediately.

Food contaminated with E.coli may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick.

According to the CFIA, 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.

The CFIA says there have been no illnesses reported so far.
