The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has issued a recall on Robin Hood brand all-purpose due to a possible E. coli contamination.

The flour was sold in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

In a statement, the agency says Smucker Foods of Canada Corp. is recalling 10-kilogram bags of Robin Hood brand all-purpose flour with a best-before date of April 17, 2018.
