The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has expanded the XL Beef food recall.
The CFIA has now added whole muscle cuts to the list of previously recalled ground beef products.
The cuts may be contaminated with E. coli.
And there may be more recalls yet because the CFIA is continuing to trace products.
Public Health Authorities are investigating several illnesses.
Consumers who are unsure if they have affected products are advised to check with the store(s) where they were purchased.
For more information, consumers and industry can call the CFIA at 1-800-442-2342 / TTY 1-800-465-7735 (8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern time, Monday to Friday).
