Goat cheese recalled

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.

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.
