In Canada, doctors rejected 11 kinds of cheese: there is the possibility of infection

September 8 2008

Sanitary control of the Canadian province of Quebec demanded to withdraw from the sale of 11 kinds of locally produced cheeses - for fear that they may be contaminated with the bacterium Listeria, a dangerous pathogen.

In this case, the counters will be removed not only those varieties which can be directly harmful to human bacteria, but also those cheeses which were on display nearby.

Only in the last two days sanitary inspectors visited more than 300 stores - in one of Montréal companies seized 326 kg of products of local cheese-makers.

Such stringent measures in the field of sanitary control in Quebec caused by the fact that, in general across Canada over the past three weeks, found 13 deaths from listeriosis, caused by contamination of animal products, ITAR-TASS.
