Health Canada has just issued a recall on certain cauliflower and red and green leaf lettuce that was produced by Adam Bros. Farming Inc. because of possible E. Coli contamination.
The products have been sold in New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, and potentially nation-wide. There have been no reported illnesses yet, but the Canadian Food Inspection Agency is requesting that distributors remove the recalled products from their stores.

You can’t see, taste, or smell E. Coli, which makes it tough to recognize if a product is contaminated. Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, mild to severe abdominal cramps, and watery to bloody diarrhea, and in severe cases, some people may have seizures or strokes, need blood transfusions and kidney dialysis, or obtain permanent kidney damage.
If you believe that you, or someone around you, got sick from eating a recalled product, make sure to call your doctor immediately.
