Québec Listeria Outbreak: Consolidated Recall List


The Québec Ministry of Agriculture (MAPAC) has announced ten cheese recalls due to the presence of Listeria monocytogenes since August 22nd. At least some of the recalled cheeses have been linked to the province's recently-revealed listeriosis outbreak.

As a convenience to consumers who are trying to wade through the multiple recall announcements, we have begun a consolidated list of MAPAC's cheese recalls. This list will be updated as new information becomes available.

All of the cheeses mentioned below are potentially contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes and SHOULD NOT be eaten. Consumers who have purchased any of the recalled cheeses should either discard them or return them to the store.

In addition to the above recall notices, MAPAC has posted a list of retail establishments where the recalled cheeses were sold. This list, which includes both food stores and restaurants, is being updated by MAPAC as new information becomes available.
