Mauri Gorgonzola cheese sold in Costco stores in Colorado is being recalled because a sample showed it was contaminated with E. coli, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The FDA said the E. coli strain differs from the one that sickened 25 people in a five-state outbreak. It was during the probe into that outbreak that Colorado officials discovered the contaminated Gorgonzola. Authorities are still investigating how it became contaminated and if any consumers fell ill.
