A cheese product has been recalled from store shelves in Mississauga, Brampton, Hamilton and across Ontario as well as Quebec.

Igor brand Gorgonzola mild ripened blue-veined cheese has been recalled due to Listeria monocytogenes.

As a result, the Government of Canada is advising those who have purchased this product not to consume, use, sell, serve or distribute it.
The product was sold in packages of 350 grams with a best-before date of Feb. 1, 2023.

“Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick,” reads the Government of Canada’s website.

“Symptoms may include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness.”

Anyone who believes they may have gotten sick from eating the recalled cheese product should contact their doctor or healthcare provider.
