More pie and tart shells recalled

Contaminated flour sparks most recent investigation


A recall of various brands of pie and tart shells has been expanded as part of an ongoing investigation of E. coli contaminated flour.

The Deep Dish Pie Shells, Sweetened Tart Shells and Tart Shells are produced by Edmonton-based Harlan Bakeries and sold under the Great Value, Apple Valley, Western Family and No Name brands.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is continuing its investigation, which may lead to additional product recalls.

The flour recall has been ongoing since April. It first affected Robin Hood flour sold in four provinces in Western Canada and was later expanded across the country. It was updated again a month later to include cover products produced by Ardent Mills of Brampton, Ont.

The federal agency says there have been no confirmed illnesses associated with the pie and tart shell products.

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.
