Fromi USA is recalling 7 cases of Soureliette cheese and 2 cases of Tomme Brebis Fedou. The recalled cheeses have the potential to be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes.

The recalled Tomme Brebis Fedou cheese and Soureliette were distributed to California, New York, and Massachusetts through retail stores.

Listeria is 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.

The affected Soureliette cheese comes in a 3-pound box marked with an expiration date of 02/22/2017,01/25/2017, or 08/02/2017 stamped on the top.
