Public asked to toss Qualicum Spice cheese after E. coli outbreak

A raw milk cheese made on Vancouver Island has been linked to an E. coli outbreak, prompting a warning from the B.C. Centre for Disease Control.

Anyone who has Little Qualicum Cheeseworks' Qualicum Spice cheese in their home is asked to return it or throw it away, according to a BCCDC statement released on Tuesday.

The cheese, made by Little Qualicum Cheeseworks, tested positive for E. coli bacteria after five people became sick between August and October.
