At least two people have become sick due to an E. coli outbreak from tainted frozen beef, according to reports.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency recalled a slew of beef products sold at Canada Safeway stores on Tuesday. On the list The Gourmet's Meat Shoppe big and juicy burger and prime rib burger, as well as The Butcher's Cut pure beef patties.
The potentially tainted meat was sold in Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia and Northwest Territories.
The CBC reports that at least two people have been sickened in Ontario and Manitoba.
E. coli tainted food may not look or smell spoiled, but can cause extreme nausea, abdominal pain and bloody diarrhea.
For children, the elderly or anyone with a weak immune system, E. coli poisoning can be fatal.
In 2012, E. coli outbreaks at Alberta's XL Foods sparked Canada's largest ever beef recall.
