OTTAWA - A health hazard alert was issued Thursday warning the public not to consume a certain brand of canned green beans sold at Loblaws stores.
The grocery store chain and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) said in that cans of No Name Style Green Beans could be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum.
