The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is recalling certain types of cauliflower, red and green leaf lettuce due to possible E-coli contamination.

The products were imported by Adam Bros. Farming Inc. and were sold to consumers, retailers and restaurants in several provinces including Ontario and Quebec.

The CFIA is recommending that the recalled products be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

The recall was triggered by a recall in the United States resulting in an investigation into an outbreak of E-coli linked to the consumption of romaine lettuce.

Food contaminated with E-coli O157:H7 may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. So far, the CFIA says there have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products. Symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, mild to severe abdominal cramps and watery to bloody diarrhea.
