On Monday evening we were very concerned to hear of a link between two batches of our Qualicum Spice cheese and some confirmed cases of E.coli in the region. We are working closely with health authorities to determine the source of the contamination but, because we cannot be certain of which batches of this cheese are compromised we are performing a recall on all Qualicum Spice with Best Before dates from November 16, 2018 to April 24, 2019. We have no reason to believe any of our other products are cause for concern. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused and are working quickly towards a resolution.
Please return any Qualicum Spice cheese to the retailer where it was purchased. Qualicum Spice purchased at farmers markets can be returned at the Nat Bailey Stadium winter market in Vancouver, in person at our farm, or by phone in our store (250)954-3941
