Raspberry mousse cakes containing norovirus prompts CFIA recall

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says various raspberry mousse cakes have been recalled after it was discovered the desserts contained norovirus.

The agency issued an expanded recall notice Wednesday, saying the products have been sold in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec, New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador.

The notice, which was initially issued last week for products sold in Quebec, says the cakes may have also been distributed in other provinces and territories.

The agency says there have been reported illnesses associated with the consumption of the cakes, but did not specify how many.

The decision to recall the products was made after the CFIA investigated a foodborne illness outbreak.

The recalled raspberry mousse cakes include several brands, including Michaud, Jessica, Laura Secord and Top Dessert.
