Roos Foods Recall Now Includes Sour Cream

Roos Foods, which made and recalled 16 types of soft cheeses linked to a Listeria monocytogenes outbreak, has now recalled sour cream produced at the company’s Kenton plant. One death in California and seven illnesses in Maryland have been reported as a result of the contamination of the cheeses. Three of the sickened persons are newborns. You can see pictures of the labels of the recalled cheeses at the FDA web site.

Warning Recall SignThe recall now includes Crema Pura Mexicana Cultured Sour Cream, according to the Delaware Division of Public Health. The product was distributed in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. No bacteria was found in the product, but environmental tests found the bacteria at the factory.

Anyone who has purchased this product should destroy it. And sanitize your refrigerator and any surfaces or utensils that may have come into contact with the sour cream. Listeria bacteria can survive and grow at refrigerator temperatures so you must be vigilant.

If you ate this sour cream, monitor yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis, the illness caused by the Listeria monocytogenes bacteria, for the next 70 days. That’s how long it can take from the time of exposure until symptoms begin. The symptoms include stiff neck, headache, fever, nausea, vomiting, and muscle aches. Pregnant women may have only a mild illness, but the bacteria can cause stillbirth and miscarriage. If you do get ill in the next two months, contact your doctor and tell him that you ate this recalled product.
