The recalled products is Pezzetta Montasio DOP Cheese, sold in variable sizes with variable UPC numbers. Some product packages may not bear the same brand or product name as described, or even have a brand name at all. This product may have been sold clerk-served from deli counters with or without a label. If you aren’t sure if you purchased this product, check with the retailer.

Do not eat this product if you purchased it. Throw it away in a sealed or double bagged package or take it back to the store where you bought it for a full refund. Then clean out your refrigerator with a mild bleach solution, since Listeria monocytogenes bacteria can grow at temperatures below 40°F.

If you ate this product, watch yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. Those symptoms include headache, vomiting, nausea, high fever, stiff neck, and diarrhea. Some people, especially pregnant women, may only be mildly ill, but listeriosis can cause stillbirth and miscarriage. If you do feel ill, see your doctor.
