The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced that Roos Foods, of Kenton Delaware, is expanding its recall of Hispanic-style cheeses, because of the possibility of contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.
An investigation into an outbreak of listeriosis that has affected at least eight people in Maryland and California established a link with consumption of soft and semi-soft Hispanic-style cheeses produced by Roos Foods.
The company responded by recalling all lots of a number of different cheese products. The recall has now been expanded to include all product sizes and containers of Santa Rosa de Lima Queso Duro Blando (hard cheese) and Mexicana Queso Cojito Molido. As an additional precaution, Roos Foods is also recalling certain cultured sour cream products sold under several brand names and packed in various pack types and sizes.
