Listeria found in Queso Cheese

Posted on September 19, 2011

After the U.S. Department of Agriculture found Queso Fresco Casero Fresh Cheese to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, Del Bueno, the manufacturer, is conducting a recall, according to a news release.

The product affected are all 16 ounce packages of the cheese with a  stamp of Sept 14, 2011. The cheese comes in round, plastic, clear containers. The product was sold in Washington and at the Pasco, WA flea market.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause life-threatening illness. Although healthy individuals usual just experience symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, diarrhea, and abdominal pain, the infection can be fatal in individuals such as children, the elderly, pregnant women, and those with weakened immune systems. Women who are pregnant often experience still-births or miscarriages as a result of being infected.

If you’ve purchased this product, you can return it to your store of purchase for a full refund.

As a Los Angeles personal injury attorney, consumer health is something that I am very conscious of and I know that even with tough rules and regulations on manufacturers mistakes are often made. I encourage anyone who is experiencing the symptoms of Listeria to seek immediate medical attention. The product liability lawyers at our law firm sincerely hope that no one has been sickened by consuming the recalled cheese.
