A voluntary recall of dairy products has been extended for the fifth time since the original recall of products potentially contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, Canadian food safety authorities have said.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) announced the latest voluntary recall from manufacturer 3903052 Canada Inc. over a month after the 11 November initial alert.

One illness has been reported in relation to consumption of the products.

The latest recall applies to 10 cheese products including Bio-Life, Fromagerie Marie Kadé, TIFCO branded products and an Oaxaca cheese produced by the company.

Eight Bio-Life and Fromagerie Marie Kadé branded dairy products were also recalled.

FoodQualityNews.com reported last week how the manufacturer was forced to extend its voluntary recall after an administration error resulted in some remaining on the market.

However, a CFIA representative told FoodQualityNews.com that there was no administration blunder on this occasion.
