Two deaths have been reported in an outbreak of listeriosis that has been linked to a brand of cheese made by Vulto Creamery.
Six people have been hospitalized across the country, ranging from Connecticut, Florida, New York and Vermont, ages spreading from 1-89.
Vulto Creamery have recalled all of their Ouleout, Miranda, Heinennellie and Qillowemoc soft wash-rind raw milk cheese.
In a statement released from the company, they announced that “if you have any of this soft, wash-rind raw-milk cheese, please do not consume it. Consumers that have any of these soft raw milk cheeses from Vulto Creamery should return the cheese to the purchase location for a refund.”
They adviser retailers that “any of the Vulto Creamery soft, wash-rind raw milk cheese on hand should immediately remove these products from common storage coolers and quarantine these cheeses in a secured area of a cooler.”
The FDA has shut down the production at the company while they investigate the cause of the outbreak.
