Throw out that headcheese!

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – The B.C. Centre for Disease Control is asking anyone who may have purchased “Freybe” headcheese to throw it in the trash.

It may be associated to a salmonella outbreak in the province. Ten cases of a rare strain of the bacteria have turned up over the last two weeks. A salmonella infection can cause stomach cramps, diarrhea, nausea, fever and a headache.

Headcheese is a deli product made from meat from the head of a pig, combined with gelatine and spices. The product was sold in several stores from mid to late June.
