A catering company supplying Meals on Wheels has been closed by Victoria's health department after finding listeria cases.

At least one person has fallen ill following the case.

The facility, in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, will be closed until the department is satisfied that it is safe.

The department has started to warn catering companies, including Meals on Wheels, providing in the area where their food can be contaminated.

Yarra Ranger Council, who is in the affected area, said The Age he had contacted around 100 people who received Meals on Wheels in the area and told them to throw out the meals.
