Oct 23 (Reuters) - The XL Foods plant that produced millions of pounds of beef tainted with E. coli bacteria is reopening today, Canadian food inspection officials said on Tuesday.

The Brooks, Alberta plant has been closed since Sept. 27 after producing beef contaminated with E. coli bacteria that sickened at least 16 people in Canada.
