According to international news report, Saputo Inc., Canada‘s biggest diary processor had announced on Friday that they are expanding the list of products that may contain listeria monocytogenes, a bacteria that could cause serious illness.

Saputo‘s earlier recall was limited only to a single product from Faith Farms brand that has been contaminated with listeria.

The new recall list of cheese products includes Faith Farms, Sunspun and St.Albert.

Saputo spokesperson Sandy Vassiadis said, “We do not know the root cause of the problem and that is why we are recalling all the process cheese slices that were manufactured on the production line until November 26.”

“We have decided to put public interests first and the company is taking these broader precautionary actions to respond proactively to the situation.” she added.

Reports said that the recalled products have been distributed nationally, but no illnesses linked to the consumption of the recalled cheese have been reported.

Meanwhile, Saputo is now taking actions and have conducted investigation about the issue with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
