Cilento Mozzarella di Bufala Campana Recalled For Listeria

A.M. Berchicci is recalling Cilento Mozzarella di Bufala Campana from the marketplace in Canada for possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. The product was sold in Ontario and Quebec at the retail level. No illnesses have been reported in association with the consumption of this product.

The recalled cheese is Cilento Mozzarella di Bufala Campana, sold in 200 gram packages. The UPC number on the product is 8 16785 02008 5, and the code on the cheese package is 19 DEC 15.

The recall was triggered by Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) test results. A food safety investigation is being conducted, and more products may be recalled. The government is making sure that the company is removing this cheese from the marketplace so consumers can’t by it.

If you did buy this cheese, don’t eat it. Throw it away in a sealed package in a secure garbage can, or take it back to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Then clean out your refrigerator with a solution of 1 tablespoon liquid chlorine bleach to 1 gallon of warm water. Wipe down all packages, rinse them, then return them to the cleaned fridge. Listeria can grow at temperatures below 40°F, and freezing does not kill it.

If you ate this product, monitor your health for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. It can take that long for symptoms to appear. People with listeriosis generally have a high fever, stiff neck, severe headache, cramps, and diarrhea. Pregnant women need to be especially careful with this pathogen since it can cause miscarriage and stillbirth. If you do feel sick, even if the illness seems mild, see your doctor.
