A few months ago news of a listeria outbreak originating from tainted cantaloupes from select farms in Colorado caused a stir after approximately thirty deaths in the U.S. Dubbed one of the largest food-spread epidemics of the decade; listeria is still causing a stir with the latest news about certain cheeses that may be contaminated.
Massachusetts health officials are urging people to avoid cheese from the brand Fromagerie Marie Kade because such cheese may be contaminated with a potentially fatal strain of listeria.
The cheese is made in Canada, and was sold in markets in Norwood and Worcester. The cheese can be identified by an 1874 stamp with the company’s establishment number.
So far there have not been any illnesses reported in connection with the cheese, though the tainted cheese still has not yet expired, so there’s a chance it may still be in people’s homes.
