Listeriosis is a serious infection generally caused by contaminated food and is particularly unsafe to pregnant women, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems. Any wholesaler or distributor that has any of the eight Vulto Creamery cheeses should contact Vulto Creamery to receive instructions on what to do with the cheese. Pregnant women often have no symptoms of Listeria, but infections are extremely serious for babies and can lead to miscarriage or death.
Six illnesses have been reported since September 2016, including two deaths, in CT (1), Florida (1), NY (3) and Vermont (1).
Anyone who experiences symptoms should seek medical care.
If you ate any of these recalled cheeses, watch yourself for the symptoms of Listeria monocytogenes food poisoning for the next 70 days. A listeria outbreak is still being investigated by the FDA.

Throughout February, nine other cheese companies recalled products sourced from Deutsch Kase Hause.
A message seeking comment from Vulto officials on Monday hasn't been returned.
On Wednesday, the FDA received positive test results confirming that Ouleout cheese samples matched the genetic fingerprint of the outbreak bacteria. Food and cheese wholesalers and retailers with any Vulto Creamery cheeses on hand should immediately remove these products from common storage coolers and quarantine these cheeses in a secured area of a cooler.
