      An Ontario-based cheese company is recalling one of its products across Canada, including in British Columbia, due to potential contamination with bacteria.

      The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) stated that Silani Sweet Cheese began a national recall on February 14 for its Silani Mozzzarella Ball processed cheese product due to the possible presence of generic E. coli (Escherichia coli). 

      The affected product is sold in 260 gram packages with UPC 0 65052 51369 4 and date code “Best Before: 2021.01.08”.

      Anyone who has this product should return it to the place of purchase or dispose of it.

      Symptoms usually appear one to 10 days after exposure to E. coli, including nausea, vomiting, headache, mild fever, severe stomach cramps, and diarrhea.

      Information about E. coli , including symptoms, risks, and treatment, is available at the Health Canada website.
