Listeria Food Poisoning

Listeria infections can take up to 70 days to cause food poisoning symptoms. Not everyone has symptoms, but they may include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

Listeria infections are rare, but they can be deadly. They spread from the intestines to the bloodstream in 5-10% of cases, often resulting in life-threatening sepsis or meningitis (brain inflammation). Pregnant women also have a high risk of miscarriage or stillbirth.

Vulto Cheese Recall

In March 2017, an outbreak of Listeria in raw milk cheese sickened 6 people, including a newborn baby and 2 people who died. In response, Vulto Creamery recalled all raw milk cheese. The cheese was also recalled by Whole Foods.

Cheese Tests Positive for Listeria

In February 2017, Tennessee Department of Agriculture reported finding Listeria monocytogenes in a sample of Amish Classic Colby deli cheese that was randomly collected from a store in Trenton, TN on January 30.

The cheese that tested positive for Listeria was made by Deutsch Kase Haus, LLC in November 2016, but it was cut and wrapped by MDS Foods in Tennessee. When these 3rd-party cheese suppliers issued recalls, it set off a chain-reaction of recalls from all of their customers.

Deutsch Käse Haus was warned about Listeria monocytogenes after FDA inspections in 2009 found that 12% of surface swabs (3 out of 25) tested positive. Unlike most bacteria, Listeria grows in cold temperatures and it thrives in refrigerators and deli counters.
