The Canadian recall was triggered by a USA recall which came after multiple cases of food poisoning and E. coli contamination from certain lettuce products.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is recalling certain cauliflower, red leaf lettuce and green leaf lettuce produced by Adam Bros.

The company said none of the recalled products have tested positive for E. coli, but the company was issuing the voluntary recall in cooperation with the FDA out of an abundance of caution. Family Farms, a farm in California, could be contaminated with E. coli bacteria. And the company is asking that all its customers notify the "downline chain of custody" to make sure the recall is full and complete. Farming, Inc. about potential E. coli contamination.

In severe cases of illness, some people may have seizures or strokes, need blood transfusions and kidney dialysis, or obtain permanent kidney damage.

Cauliflower was sent to wholesalers in Arizona, California, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania, as well as to Tijuana, Mexico, and Canada.
