Cheese, dairy products recalled in Ontario, Quebec
Cheese and dairy products sold under several brand names in Ontario and Quebec may be contaminated with Listeria and are being recalled, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency says.
The agency and a Quebec manufacturer are warning the public not to consume the products, which are sold under the brand names Clic, Deschamps, Fromagerie Marie Kadé and TIFCO.
One person who consumed the products has become ill, said the agency, which is monitoring the voluntary recall.
The products, all bearing the establishment number 1874, are manufactured by a Quebec numbered company, 3903052 of Boisbriand.
Listeria contamination may not change the look or smell of food but can cause listeriosis, an illness with symptoms that include high fever, severe headache, stiff neck and nausea.
Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weak immune systems are especially at risk, the agency said.
