Laiterie Coaticook Ltée. has issued a recall on certain types of its Quebec-made cheese.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products.
The market recall, which was triggered by the company, includes certain Coaticook brand Cheddar cheese that was possibly exposed to Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
Consumers should not consume the recalled products. If you think you became sick from any of the cheeses, the CFIA urges you to call your doctor.

The health agency is asking citizens to check to see if you have the recalled product in your home. Recalled items should be thrown out or returned to the store where it was purchased.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says “food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick.”
Symptoms may 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.
There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of these recalled cheeses.
