MIAMI (AP) — A Miami company is recalling 6,000 pounds of cheese from California stores because of possible bacteria contamination.
The affected cheese has an expiration date of Aug. 31, 2017, and a UPC code of 8 52304 74023 2. The lot number is 254.
No illnesses have been reported. The recall followed testing by the Florida Department of Agriculture.
The organism can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
Healthy adults can experience flu-like symptoms.
