People should check to see if the recalled products are in their homes or establishments. The recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the location where they were purchased.
Remember that food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell tainted, but consuming the product can still make you sick. Symptoms of this food-borne illness can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness, says War on Bacteria.
Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk. It should be noted that while pregnant women may only experience mild, flu-like symptoms of this illness, the infection could lead to premature birth or infection of the newborn, or even stillbirth. In some cases, Listeria infections have led to death.
Bothwell Cheese started in 1936 in New Bothwell, Manitoba, Canada. The company website proudly states that only locally sourced milk is used in the making of their cheese products. Bothwell produces 15,000 kg (33,069 pounds) of cheese per day.
