Cheese, please!

  • Sep. 23, 2013 6:00 p.m.

Cheese-lovers across Haida Gwaii should be pleased to know that none of the E. Coli infected cheese from Gort’s Gouda Cheese Farm in Salmon Arm has made it here. We called Isabel Creek Store in Queen Charlotte, Gwaii Co-op in Skidegate, Delmas Co-op in Masset, SuperValu in Sandspit, Bayview Market in Port, and Crow’s Nest in Tlell and all report not having any Gort’s cheese right now, although Isabel Creek did have some cheese from Gorts-not necessarily E. Coli infected- a few weeks ago. City Centre in Queen Charlotte did not return our call about the cheese by press time. Fifteen different kinds of cheese from Gorts have been recalled by the federal government in the past four months. Infected cheese was sold in BC, Alberta and Quebec. One person in Alberta, an elderly woman, died after eating infected cheese from Gorts.
