Italian Gorgonzola Cheese Recalled Due to Listeria

An Italian-made cheese is being recalled because of concerns it may be contaminated with Listeria.

Mauri brand Gorgonzola cheese, sold in package of approximately 1.44 kilograms, has a packaging date of Jan. 7, 2013 and a best-before date of Apr. 7, 2013.

The importer, Arla Foods Inc. of Concord, Ont., distributed the cheese across Canada and is voluntarily recalling it from the marketplace.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says there have been no reported illnesses linked to this product.

The cheese has been distributed in Alberta, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Quebec, according to the CFIA.
