The recalled product is Little Hatches Jalapeno Cream Cheese that is packaged in 14 ounce containers. On the label the product name is Little Hatch’s.

The potential for contamination was noted after routine testing by the FDA revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in the product. If you purchased this product, do not eat it. You can throw it away after first double bagging it. Put it into a secure garbage can with a tight fitting lid so other people and animals can’t access it. Or you can take it back to the store where you bought it for a full refund.

You should then clean out your refrigerator with a mild bleach solution of 1 tablespoon liquid chlorine bleach to 1 gallon of warm water. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling this product and after cleaning.

Those symptoms can include a high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, muscle aches, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Pregnant women may only be mildly ill with what may seem like the flu if they contract this infection, but can suffer miscarriage and stillbirth. If you do feel sick, see your doctor.
