Pie and tart shells recall expanded due to E. coli contamination

Investigation expands recall to include products sold at three Ontario locations
5/12/2017

A recall of various brands of pie and tart shells due to the presence of E. coli, which was first announced last month, is expanding to cover additional product information.

This additional information was identified during the Canadian Food Inspection Agency's (CFIA) food safety investigation. The recall now includes four pie and tart shell products sold at three Ontario locations. The list of products and locations can be found here.

The initial recall affected shells produced by Edmonton-based Harlan Bakeries that were sold across Canada.

The federal agency says there have been no confirmed illnesses associated with these 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.
