Headcheese sickens 18 in Ontario and B.C. with salmonella

The sickies stepping forward now number 18 and the Public Health Agency of Canada says people shouldn’t eat Freybe brand headcheese produced by G. Brandt Meat Packers in Mississauga, Ont.

The headcheese was distributed nationally by Freybe Gourmet Foods Ltd., but it is sliced and packaged at deli counters in various stores so consumers may not be aware of the brand they bought.

How can anyone consider headcheese a gourmet food?
