Five shredded cheese products made by Manitoba-based Bothwell Cheese are being pulled from store shelves over fears of possible listeria contamination. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) says the items include mozzarella blend shredded cheese, as well as mild, white, old and old cheddar products.
They’ve been sold in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Quebec.
The recall was triggered by inspection agency test results, but CFIA says there have been no reports of illness.

Food contaminated with listeria may not look or smell spoiled but can still make people sick. Symptoms include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headaches and neck stiffness.
CFIA officials say anyone who has these products should either throw them out or return them to the location where they were purchased.
