Yesterday, the United States Food and Drug administration issued a recall of about 10 different cheeses from a Kent Delaware manufacturer. Roos Foods are the manufacture of Mexicana cheese that have been found to contain “Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women” according to the recall by the FDA.

The cheese was sold in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. through retail stores. The products were packaged in flexible plastic bags and also a solid plastic clam shaped package.
