Crave Brothers Les Freres Cheese Recalled

Date:
July 5, 2013
Category:
Food
Company/Brand:
Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese Company
The Danger:
The cheese is being recalled because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. To date, one illness and one death have been reported.
