The CFIA has recalled 1.22 kg bags of In-Dey-Go Fundraising Inc. Dark Chocolate and White Chocolate Chunk cookie dough with product number 17039.

A recall on flour products has expanded again.
 
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has recalled two kinds of cookie dough sold by schools and fundraising groups over concerns they contain flour that could be contaminated with E. coli bacteria. 
 
The agency urged people to throw out 1.2 kg packages of Dark Chocolate and White Chocolate Chunk cookie dough made by In-Dey-Go Fundraising Inc. with product code 17039.
 
The CFIA also issued a recall notice for industrial-sized bags of Baker's Hood flour, used in restaurants and hotels.
 
The recall began back in March with a few types of Robin Hood flour. It has since expanded to just over 50 items.
 
A full list of the affected products can be found on the CFIA website.
 
The CFIA reported that 30 people, including 4 in Saskatchewan, have gotten sick as a result of the contaminated flour.
 
The agency released a statement saying it believes the outbreak is contained, and warning people never to consume raw flour or raw cookie dough, as these can contain harmful bacteria.
