VANCOUVER - The Public Health Agency of Canada says it is investigating in five provinces more cases of E. coli connected to contaminated cheese products from British Columbia.
The number of cases has now risen to 24, with 11 cases in B.C., 10 in Alberta, and one each in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Quebec.
All the people involved became sick between mid-July and mid-September after eating products from Gort's Gouda Cheese Farm.
Cory Vander Linde, an 82-year-old Vernon woman, died in August from the bacterium linked to the farm located in Salmon Arm.
