Queso Fresco has been recalled for Listeria

Karoun Dairies Inc. of San Fernando, California is recalling a variety of cheeses that have been associated with Listeria illnesses. Consumers who have purchased any of these cheeses should not eat them as Listeria can cause serious illness and death.

“Listeria’s natural habitat is in the soil.  It is highly adaptable, however, and once Listeria gains a foothold in a food processing plant, it can quickly spread onto food contact surfaces and into the food itself,” said Brendan Flaherty, a food safety lawyer.

Those at high risk of Listeria infections are young children, seniors, those with compromised immune systems and pregnant women.  Among pregnant women, listeriosis can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery or infection of newborns.Symptoms of an infection include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

The recalled products are vacuum packed, in jars or in pails under the following brands; Karoun, Arz, Gopi, Queso Del Valle, Central Valley Creamery, Gopi, and Yanni. Weights vary from 5 ounces to 30 pounds. They were distributed to nationwide to grocery stores and food service accounts.  The list of recalled products is below.

Stores that sold the recalled products include Publix, which  sold Karoun Goat Basket Feta 8oz. UPC 96252 50001 select Sam’s Club stores and other stores.
