If you purchased any of these cheeses, do not eat them. Throw them away in a secure trash can, or take them back to the place of purchase for a refund.

You should then clean your refrigerator with a mild bleach solution to kill bacteria. Remember that Listeria monocytogenes can grow at refrigerator temps and freezing doesn’t kill it.

If you ate these cheeses, monitor your health for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days, especially if you are pregnant, elderly, or have a chronic health condition. If you do feel sick, see your doctor.
