Renard’s Cheese is recalling bacon cold-pack cheese spread sold at its Sturgeon Bay store, because the product may be contaminated with the bacteria called Listeria monocytogenes.
Officials say the bacteria can cause serious or fatal infections in children, elderly people or those with weakened immune systems. It can also cause stillbirth or miscarriage in pregnant women. Other symptoms include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
No one has reported illness due to the spread.
Officials discovered the contamination through routine testing of samples.
The same product and others are also sold at the company’s Algoma store, but they are not included in the recall.
