Switzerland’s Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office (FSVO) has issued a warning that cheeses produced by Käserei Vogel AG in Steinerberg, Switzerland are contaminated with listeria.
The products, which should not be eaten, have been recalled from shop shelves, however, some were sold before the recall.
The cheeses contain Listeria. Among those with no immunity problems, listeria infection typically leads to benign symptoms, or no symptoms at all. However, it can lead to severe symptoms in immunocompromised people and may be fatal. During pregnancy, listeria infection can lead to miscarriage, or a child born with blood poisoning or meningitis.
The producer informed the FSVO yesterday that it had found listeria in the cheese and at a production site at Steinerberg.
The contaminated cheeses below were sold by Coop:
- Fromage du Wildspitz
- Fromage de Steinerberg ¼ gras
- Fromage à raclette au lait de brebis bio Coop Naturaplan
