Food and Drug Administration
— Greek Foods & Gifts Direct Inc. of New Jersey is recalling 387 cases of Provato brand Manouri traditional Greek cheese because it might be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes. The bacteria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. The recall was the result of a routine FDA sampling program, which discovered the bacteria after the FDA had released the product in error.
