The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is recalling PC brand "Canadian Cheddar" cheese due to possible Listeria contamination.

The affected product is 250 grams and has a best-before date of Aug. 24, 2023.

Consumers are asked to check if they have that particular cheese and to throw it out or return it to the store they bought it from.

The recall was triggered by CFIA testing, but so far there have been no reported illnesses.

If people have eaten this particular cheese and become sick, they should contact their health-care provider.

Listeria bacteria contamination can cause "vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness," the recall notice says.
