Environmental samples taken from a NetCost Market deli in Brooklyn, New York, along with several opened packages of ham and mortadella that were sliced at that same market, along with sliced salmi purchased from a NetCost Market in Staten Island all tested positive for the outbreak strain of Listeria monocytogenes.

Even with these test results, no single food has been identified as the source of this outbreak. Officials do not know if other markets, stores, or delis may have sold food associated with this outbreak.

If you have eaten deli meats and cheese and have been ill with the symptoms of listeriosis, the illness caused by this pathogen, see your doctor. You may be part of this NetCost deli meat and cheese Listeria monocytogenes outbreak.
