The first confirmed E. coli case outside Alberta linked to XL Foods' embattled Brooks plant has been recorded.
A person in Newfoundland and Labrador was listed Friday by the Public Health Agency of Canada as being sickened by a tainted beef product originating from the plant.
The agency said the person has made a full recovery from what can be a potentially fatal infection.
Four illnesses connected to the XL Foods facility have been identified among Albertans.
The contamination has sparked the largest meat recall in Canadian history with more than 1,600 different products being pulled form shelves since Sept. 16.
