This is a pretty big recall in geographic scope, so I wanted to pass it along.
I tend to make a quick note when I see something about a food recall. So many of them are of obscure products or brands that affect only a tiny portion of the country so I usually blow them off. But this is pretty big, FYI:
September 12, 2012 – Whole Foods Market announces that it is recalling ricotta salata sold in 21 states and Washington, D.C. that came from its supplier Forever Cheese Inc. of Long Island City, NY. Forever Cheese recalled this cheese product because it may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Listeria monocytogenes 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.
