Can Your Raw Cheese Plate Kill You?

Can Your Raw Cheese Plate Kill You?

Few days back, Vulto Creamery has recalled eight cheese items: Heinennellie, Miranda, Willowemoc, Ouleout, Andes, Blue Blais, Hamden & Walton Umber due to potential contamination of Listeria monocytogenes. These cheese were sold in eight stores in Massachusetts, New Jersey, and NY.

The expanded recall includes all lots of Andes, Blue Blais, Hamden & Walton Umber.

Veronica Friedman, widow of Richard Friedman, alleges wrongful death and emotional and financial damage in her suit against the Walton, N.Y. creamery, according to her attorney at Seattle-based Marler Clark LLP, a law firm that represents victims of food-born illness outbreaks. They were cut and packaged in clear plastic wrap with scale labels beginning with PLU codes 0200307, 0201357 or 0206308 and "sell by" dates from 01/02/2017 to 04/02/2017.

Profar extends World Baseball Classic hitting streak in win
Both teams finished with one win and two defeats in Pool A, meaning a tiebreaker was required to settle the remaining spot. Danielle Barta, Jerusalem director of the Israel Association of Baseball, said the players have become role models.

Consumers that have any of these cheeses from Vulto Creamery should return the cheese to the purchase location for a refund.

State officials said a Whole Foods grocery store in Fairfield received Vulto cheese. Wash your hands with soap and water after handling these cheeses.

"If you purchased these products, do not eat them, "reported the Food Poisoning Bulletin". 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, stillbirths and fetal infection among pregnant women". If you do feel ill, see your doctor.
