Sargento recalls products due to possible listeria contamination

Sargento recalls products due to possible listeria contamination

Sargento, maker of fine prepackaged cheese, is recalling seven of its products due to a potential listeria contamination at the facilities of its cheese supplier Deutsch Kase Haus.

While there have been no confirmed cases of Listeria associated with the recall, it's better to be safe than sorry - according to the CDC, Listeria is a serious infection caused by contamination of the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes; about 1600 people contract it a year, and it results in 260 deaths. However, even healthy consumers can experience symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarhhea.
