A Canadian cheese maker is recalling some types of shredded cheese due to a risk of Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
Bothwell Cheese Inc.
The affected products were sold in Quebec, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) warned that the product should not be consumed, and should be thrown out or returned. Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled, but can lead to vomiting, nausea, fever, muscle aches, headaches and neck stiffness.
CFIA said pregnant women, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk.
