Residents in Durham, Ontario, are being warned not to consume unpasteurized apple products from a second local farm, after three cases of E. coli that may be linked to the beverage.
Apple or apple pear cider from both Watson Farms and Tyrone Mills purchased within the last two weeks may be contaminated with the bacteria.
There are three cases that have been linked to the consumption of unpasteurized cider from Tyrone Mills. Watson Farms also had cider pressed at Tyrone Mills during the affected time period.
Unpasteurized fruit juices and cider products have been linked to E. coli 0157:H7, a dangerous strain of E. coli that can cause serious illness or death. The Health Department recommends purchasing only pasteurized juices or ciders.
People who purchased cider from either source are to call the health department.
