Costco Wholesale is recalling Gold Coast brand Broccettes due to possible E. coli contamination.
Officials say the broccoli florettes may have come into contact with E. coli. The item was sold in B.C. and comes in a 907-gram bag. The code on the product is 12 AU 2017, and the UPC number is 7 35844 00033 5.
There have been no reported illnesses at this time and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) said the recall was prompted by the company. CFIA is conducting a food-safety investigation and verifying that the product is being removed from the stores.
CIFA said food contaminated with E. coli may not look or smell spoiled but can still make someone sick. Symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, mild to severe abdominal cramps and watery to bloody diarrhea. In severe cases, people may have seizures or strokes, or may die.
