More than 30 companies, including Walmart, have recalled their beef products due to E. Coli.

A recall was first issued October 12 and then updated, Tuesday, to include further beef products across the country.

Most of those warnings are issued for Ontario, Quebec and Alberta, but B.C. buyers should be aware as well. Some products the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) have included in the notice are bacon-wrapped beef products at Overwaitea and ground beef from HelloFresh in B.C.

The CFIA stated there has been no reported illnesses to date yet, but it is important to be aware of the symptoms of E. Coli.

“If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor,” the CFIA notice reads. “Food contaminated with E. coli O157:H7 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.”
