If you bought a recalled product, you can return the cheese to the place of purchase and receive a full refund.  The cheese should be quarantined before returned.  


Listeria monocytogenes is a dangerous bacteria that can cause serious and even fatal infections in young children, the elderly, pregnant women, and people with weak immune systems.  Healthy adults can still suffer from serious side effects like high fever, intense headache, nausea, stiffness, diarrhea, and abdominal pain.  Listeria can lead to miscarriages and stillbirths if a woman is pregnant.
