OTTAWA — The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is recalling several cheeses imported from Scotland due to possible Listeria contamination.
Eighteen varieties of cheese products under the Isle of Kintyre brand name and six more carrying the Inverloch Cheese Co. label are being recalled by Toronto-based Glen Echo Fine Foods.
The cheeses are sold in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec, Newfoundland and Labrador and possibly other provinces and territories.
The CFIA says anyone who bought the recalled products should throw them out or return them to the store where they were purchased.
The agency says the cheeses may have been sold in smaller packages, cut and wrapped by some retailers. Consumers unsure if they have purchased the affected products should contact their retailer.
There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these products.
Food contaminated with Listeria may not look or smell spoiled but can still cause illness. Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness.
Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk.
