Yakima Cheese Linked to Listeria Cases

wsdoh logoAs of January 16, 2015, a total of three cases of Listeria have been identified from Washington in King, Pierce and Yakima counties according to a news release from the Washington State Department of Health. These cases have been linked to soft cheese produced by Queseria Bendita, a Yakima, Washington firm.

Three Queseria Bendita brand cheeses to watch for are Queso Fresco, Panela, and Requeson. Throw them out if you still have any in your refrigerator.

Listeriosis is a serious infection caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes. The disease affects primarily older adults, pregnant women, newborns, and persons with weakened immune systems. Approximately 11 to 29 cases of listeriosis are reported in Washington each year. Pregnant women, newborns and adults with weakened immune systems most at risk.
