CFIA says no reports of illnesses from Formaggio brand product sold in five provinces
The public is being warned not to consume a type of deli meat wrapped around mozzarella cheese because it may be contaminated with Listeria.
Costco Wholesale Canada Ltd. is recalling Formaggio brand Artisan Wraps Italian Style Meats around Fresh Mozzarella.
The product distributed by Costco in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador.
It was sold in 675 gram packages with best before dates between Feb. 13 and March 11.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says there have been no reported illnesses associated with the product so far.

Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk.
