If you buy Burrata cheese from retail outlets or at restaurants in Southern California or in the San Francisco Bay area, this recall is for you!
Fresca Italia of Brisbane, CA is expanding its May 30th recall of Burrata, a type of cheese, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
Healthy individuals may suffer short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal, or diarrhea.
Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
The poison cheese weighs approximately 8.8oz and is packaged in a white and green plastic wrapper with the manufacturer’s name, "Caseificio Voglie di Latte" and the product name "Burrata."
