If you purchased any of these cheeses, which were sold in Ontario and Quebec at the retail level, do not eat them. Throw them away in a sealed container inside a secure garbage can, or take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund.

After you discard the cheese, clean out your refrigerator with a mild bleach solution to kill any bacteria. Listeria monocytogenes bacteria can grow at refrigerator temperatures, and freezing doesn’t kill it.

If you ate any of this cheese, watch for the symptoms of listeriosis, which. may take up to 70 days to appear. Those symptoms can include high fever, stiff neck, serious headache, nausea, and diarrhea. Pregnant women may only feel mildly sick, but listeriosis can cause miscarriage and stillbirth. If you do get sick, see your doctor.
