Dongé Coulommiers Raw Milk Cheese Recalled For Listeria Monocytogenes

Les Dépendances is recalling Dongé brand Coulommiers raw milk cheese in Canada for possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this issue.

The recall was triggered by the company. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is conducting a food safety investigation, which may trigger the recall of other products. The CFIA is making sure that industry is removing the recalled cheese from the marketplace.

The product was sold in Quebec at the retail level. The cheese may have been sold cut in half or in quarters. The common name of the cheese is Coulommiers, sold in 500 gram packages. The code on the product is Best before 2019 JL 12 LOT: MA010419CO, and the UPC number is 8 31014 41211 0.

If you purchased this cheese, don’t eat it. Throw it away in a secure garbage can with a tight fitting lid so other people and animals can’t access it. You can take it back to the place of purchase for a full refund. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling the cheese.

You should then clean out your refrigerator with a mild beach solution to kill bacteria. Listeria monocytogenes bacteria can grow at temperatures below 40°F. Freezing does not kill this pathogen.

If you ate this cheese, monitor yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis, the illness caused by this pathogen. Those symptoms include high fever, stiff neck, severe headache, nausea, and diarrhea. Pregnant women may only have a mild illness that seems like the flu, but listeriosis can cause stillbirth and miscarriage. If you do feel ill, call your doctor.
