Le Pic Brand Saint-Félicien Cheese Recalled For Possible E. coli O26

Le Pic brand Saint-Félicien cheese is being recalled in Canada for possible E. coli O26 contamination by La Fromagerie Hamel. The product was sold in Quebec at the consumer level. No illnesses have been reported in Canada in connection with this recall, but there is a deadly outbreak in France that is linked to this product.

The recalled product is Le Pic Saint-Félicien cheese, sold in 180 gram containers. All codes up to and including April 29, 2019 are included in the recall. The UPC number on the product is 0 20060641300 0.

Symptoms of an E. coli O26 infection include severe and painful abdominal cramps, and watery and bloody diarrhea. Some people have a mild fever, and others can experience nausea and vomiting. Symptoms usually begin a few days to a week after exposure to this pathogen. A complication of this illness is called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), which is a type of kidney failure that mostly affects children under the age of five.

This recall was triggered say a recall in another country. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is conducting a food safety investigation which may lead to the recall of other products. The government is verifying that the company is removing this recalled product from the marketplace.

If you purchased this cheese, do not eat it. Throw it away in a sealed garbage can after first wrapping it in other material so other people and animals can’t access it. You can also take it back to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
