Food products recalled by the federal government yesterday may have made there way into the homes of British Columbians.

The Gourmet Meat Shoppe and The Butcher's Cut brands of frozen beef hamburgers found in Safeway stores across the province may be contaminated with E. coli.

The recall was issued by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency a result of an ongoing investigation into an outbreak related to the bacteria naturally found in animal intestines that is harmful to humans.

The federal advisory lists several affected products: The Gourmet's Meat Shoppe Big and Juicy Burger and Meat Shoppe Prime Rib Burger, and various-sized packs of The Butcher's Cut Pure Beef Patties. A full description of the products can be found here.

According to Health Canada, most people who ingest E. coli experience a few days of upset stomach and illness, but it is sometimes life threatening.

Symptoms can appear within one to 10 days after contact with the bacteria and may include severe stomach cramps, watery or bloody diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, headache and slight fever.

Life-threatening symptoms can include kidney failure, seizure and stroke and require medical attention.

Loblaw Companies Limited is also warning of select 650 ml size of PC White Corn Black Bean Mild Salsa and 430 ml size of PC Salsa Mild that may contain pieces of plastic. In B.C. and Alta., the salsa is sold several grocery stores including: Extra Foods, nofrills, Real Canadian Superstore, Shop Easy, SuperValu, Your Independent Grocer, and Real Canadian Wholesale Club.
