Second Quebec cheese recall

For the second time in less than a week, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency has expanded recalls of Quebec-made cheeses and revealed that at least one person fell sick after eating the products.

The first case involved Clic-brand cheeses and butters. The second involves the Bio-Life and Marie Kadé brands. In both cases, the company identifications given out by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency are numbered companies.

The second case is 3903052 Canada Inc. of Boisbriand, Que.

It’s not clear why the Canadian government isn’t revealing the company names more familiar to the  public. It is, in fact, Fromagerie Marie Kadé.

In both cases, the recalls are because the dairy products are possibly contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
