VANCOUVER - The Public Health Agency of Canada is now investigating 21 cases of E. coli in five provinces related to contaminated cheese products from a farm in British Columbia.
That's up from 14 cases on Saturday, and the agency says one case each has been reported in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Quebec, and nine people have become ill in Alberta and in British Columbia.
The individuals got sick between mid-July and early September, and an elderly woman in B.C. has died from the bacterium linked to Gort's Gouda Cheese Farm.
