How Many People Got Sick?
At least 6 people were infected with the outbreak strain of Listeria monocytogenes from 6 states, according to the CDC outbreak investigation. The outbreak has been ongoing since August 2017, and the true number of sick people is likely far higher than the number of illnesses that were confirmed.
Where Were Illnesses Reported?
Illnesses were reported in Texas, California, Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, but unreported illnesses may have occurred in other states. The recalled cheeses were sold nationwide in the U.S. and also Mexico.
Signs & Symptoms of Listeria Infection
Food poisoning with Listeria can spread beyond the intestines to other parts of the body and become very serious, or even deadly.
The symptoms of a serious illness usually start within 2 weeks of eating contaminated food, but they sometimes take up to 10 weeks.
- For non-pregnant people the symptoms can include a headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, convulsions, fever and muscle aches.
- Pregnant women may have only a mild illness, fever, fatigue, or muscle aches, but suffer a miscarriage, pregnancy loss, premature birth, serious illness or death in newborn baby, according to the CDC.
