Several Jamaican beef patty products sold across Southern Ontario have been recalled due to E. coli contamination.
Markham-based Michidean Limited is voluntarily recalling the following products:
- 16320 Michidean JA PATTY Extra Spicy Beef (frozen unbaked)
- 16320 Michidean JA PATTY Extra Spicy Beef (baked)
Customers should not eat the recalled products, said a release from York Region.
Food contaminated with E. coli O157:H7 may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick, noted the release. Symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, mild to severe abdominal cramps and watery to bloody diarrhea.
So far, there are no reports of any illnesses related to the beef patties.
