Food retailer Farm Boy is recalling six of its cheese ball products due to a potential listeria contamination, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

The CFIA said the products being recalled were sold in Ontario up to and including Sunday.

The agency added that products contaminated with listeria may not look or smell spoiled but can still make consumers sick. Symptoms of the bacteria include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness.
