Tomme d'Or Cheeses Recalled in British Columbia
Listeria monocytogenes may have contaminated Moonstruck Organic Cheese's Tomme d'Or in British Columbia. A recall was issued on the cheese by the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control after routine sampling detected Listeria.
Listeria, if present, will grow to high numbers even if the cheese has been stored in the refrigerator. Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled.
Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease.
