These products were manufactured between Sept. 1, 2016 and Jan. 27, 2017, and sold primarily in retail stores at deli counters and deli cases in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Illinois, and West Virginia. Affected products have use-by dates of June 1, 2017 – Oct. 27, 2017.
Guggisberg said in a notice provided to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that it was recalling the products “out of an abundance of caution and with an emphasis on its customers’ wellness and safety.”
Symptoms of listeria food poisoning (listeriosis) include fever, muscle aches, nausea and/or diarrhea. If the infection spreads to the nervous system, symptoms may include confusion, loss of balance, convulsions and death.
The ongoing listeria outbreak has already been linked to recalls of Sargento, Taylor Farms, MDS Foods, Choice Foods, and Country Fresh products.
Consumers who purchased cheese affected by any of these recalls should discard the products or return them to the point of purchase for a full refund.
To date, not illnesses have been reported in connection with the listeria outbreak.
