Secondary Listeria Recalls For Rizo Lopez Cheeses Begin

Secondary Listeria monocytogenes recalls for Rizo Lopez Cheeses have begun. Some of those Rizo-Lopez products have been linked to a deadly Listeria monocytogenes outbreak that has sickened at least 26 people in 11 states. Twenty-three people have been hospitalized, and two people, who lived in California and Texas, have sadly died. We are collecting the recalls in one place for a reference. More recalls are likely to be added as the weeks go on.

Secondary Listeria Recalls For Rizo Lopez Cheeses Begin

If you purchased any of these products, do not eat them. Throw them away in a secure garbage can, or take them back to the store where you bought them for a full refund. You should clean your refrigerator with a mild bleach solution to kill pathogens after you discard these items. If you froze any of these foods for later use, discard them too, and clean your freezer. Listeria monocytogenes bacteria can grow at refrigerator temperatures, and freezing does not kill it.

If you ate any of these recalled products, monitor your health for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. That’s how long it can take for people to get sick after infection. If you do get sick, see your doctor.
