A recall has been issued for L'Alpette soft ripened sheep cheese over concerns it may contain Staphylococcus bacteria.

The cheese was sold in 160 g packages in Ontario and Quebec and has a best before date of Oct. 31.

The recall comes after Canadian Food Inspection Agency testing.

There have been reports of people becoming sick from eating the cheese.

Those who have bought the cheese should throw it out or return it to the store where it was purchased.

The bacteria cannot easily be destroyed at normal cooking temperatures and symptoms of Staphylococcus poisoning include nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps and fever.
