The Canadian Food Inspection Agency warned September 16th against the consumption of several brands of ground beef from XL Foods of Brooks, Alberta because of possible E.coli contamination. The plant later had its operating license suspended and the recall was increased to include 18-hundred products sold across North America in one of the biggest beef recalls in Canadian history. Richard Arsenault, the man who managed meat programs for the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, said CFIA inspectors worked as quickly as they could to investigate the plant and determine what to recall. (Eighteen cases of E. coli illness were reported in four provinces.)
