Calgary lays charges against catering company believed linked to E. coli outbreak

The City of Calgary said Wednesday that the catering company which was providing food to daycares — and is believed to be linked to an E. coli outbreak — was operating without a business licence. 

The city said in a press release Wednesday that it has laid charges against Fueling Minds, the catering company which provided food to a number of daycares in the city. 

This comes after an outbreak of the shiga toxin-producing E. coli, which can cause serious issues and made hundreds of children sick. 

The corporation and its two directors have each been charged under the Business Licensing Bylaw for operating without a business licence for a total of 12 charges. 

Alberta Premier Danielle Smith, along with AHS health officials and members of her cabinet, are providing an update on the investigation into the E. coli outbreak in Calgary.
