Illinois food poisoning attorneysThere are a wide variety of pathogens that can lead to food poisoning. While most people are aware of the dangers of salmonella or E. coli, they may not know about listeria. Food poisoning cases involving this bacteria are less common, but they are often more serious, and an infection can result in severe illness or death. Recently, a significant number of listeria infections were linked to several different cheese products sold by the company El Abuelito, Inc.

Contaminated Cheese Products

Beginning in October of 2020 and continuing through March of 2021, multiple cases of listeria infections were reported across four states by people who had eaten Hispanic-style cheese products. As a result, El Abuelito, Inc. has recalled a number of products, including queso fresco cheeses with sell-by dates through March 28, 2021, quesillo and Oaxaca cheeses with sell-by dates through April 16, 2021, and requeson (ricotta) cheeses with sell-by dates through March 14, 2021. The recalled brands included:

  • El Abuelito
  • El Viejito
  • El Sabrosito
  • El Paisano
  • Rio Lindo
  • Rio Grande
  • La Cima
  • San Carlos
  • Quesos Finos
  • Ideal

In some cases, these products may have been repackaged at stores and sold without brand labels or under different brand names. Customers who purchased cheeses that may have been subject to a recall have been advised to throw them away or return them to the store.

Raw Milk Cheeses Recalled Over Listeria Concerns

Vulto Creamery of Walton, New York has recalled eight of its cheese products amid concerns of Listeria monocytogenes contamination. The recalled products are its Blue Blais, Hamden, Willowemoc, Miranda, Heinennellie, Walton Umber, Ouleout, and Andes raw milk cheeses, which were distributed nationwide and primarily sold at retailers in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. The products were also found in Chicago, California, Washington, D.C., and Portland, Oregon.

Listeria is a strain of bacteria that can cause severe food poisoning symptoms when consumed, particularly when it is consumed by individuals with weakened immune systems. When left untreated, Listeriosis can spread to the nervous system and cause the victim to suffer from convulsions, confusions, a stiff neck, and loss of balance. Treatment requires the use of antibiotics, which can be costly. Individuals who suffer from Listeriosis after being served or sold contaminated products may seek compensation for their damages through personal injury claims.
