Salmonella linked with cheese products sold in Ontario

A warning to not consume some cheese products is based on an ongoing investigation that showed a link between the two identified Upper Canada Cheese Company products and several confirmed cases of food-borne illness caused by salmonella bacteria.

Dr. Sheela Basrur, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health said, "If you have Upper Canada Cheese Company products with the specified product date label in your fridge, throw them out. If you have eaten cheese at home or in a restaurant, and are experiencing these symptoms, contact your physician immediately."

The cheese products are sold under the label of Niagara Gold and Comfort Cream and are sold in the Niagara Region and Greater Toronto Area.
