The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has recalled Santa Maria brand Queijo de Cabra (fresh goat cheese) because it may cause listeriosis, which can lead to high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea.
Portuguese Cheese Co. of Toronto distributed the cheese in Ontario and Quebec. The 350-gram packages have a best before date of Aug. 2, 2008, lot number 628 and universal product code 0 68168 00073 7.
No illnesses have been reported from eating the cheese.
Food contaminated with the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled, but can still cause listeriosis. At its worst, pregnant woman may suffer premature delivery, infection of the newborn, or even stillbirth.
Consumers can call the company at (416) 259- 4349 (9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET, Monday to Friday) or the agency at 1-800-442-2342 for more information.
