Listeriosis is an infection caused by the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes. The outbreak originated from lines 8 and 9 of the Maple Leaf Foods Bartor Road facility (Establishment No. 97B) in North York, Ontario, a neighbourhood of Toronto. There were about 220 possibly contaminated products, each stamped with the code "97B" near the "Best before" date. Since the bacteria travelled through deli meats, which are cooked (and as a result are usually free of pathogens), the contamination likely occurred during packaging. (emphasis mine)
You are referring to deli meats. Diffferent thing.
It can't happen to non-raw milk cheese
, as it by definition has been pasteurized.
You said "That might be because raw milk was used or it could have happened anyway."
It couldn't have happened anyway. It was because it was raw milk (unpasteurized) cheese that it became contaminated. Had it been pasteurized (and therefore not raw milk) it would not have been.
