The incident happened in the Saltspring Island.
Fear is this bacterium can cause severe illness, and in some cases it may even lead to death in elderly people and those with weak immunity or prevailing health issues.
The Center for Disease Control also clarified stating other products produced by the company are not affected by this bacterium and hence itâ€™s safe for consumption.
