The Public Health Agency of Canada says seven of the cases are from Alberta, two are from Quebec and one from Newfoundland.
Officials say the two Quebec cases and three of the Alberta cases are newly confirmed.
The agency says the individuals became ill more than two weeks ago and have recovered or are recovering.
E. coli was first detected at the plant on Sept. 4, but it took 12 days for the first of numerous public alerts to be issued.
It has led to the recall of hundreds of XL Foods beef products across Canada and much of the United States.
The recall was expanded yet again Saturday with more meat products and stores added to the list.
