CT resident dies after eating recalled cheese

Epidemiologic and laboratory evidence indicate that soft raw milk cheese made by Vulto Creamery of Walton, New York, is the likely source of this outbreak.

Federal and state health officials are investigating a multistate Listeria monocytogenes outbreak that has to date sickened six people in four states, including two fatalities since Sep.

The CDC recommends that restaurants do not serve and retailers do not sell recalled soft raw milk cheeses made by Vulto Creamery.

Product photos of all four cheese items being recalled along with a brief description are shown.

Officials with Vulto Creamery chose to voluntarily recall the cheeses after the FDA found the bacterial pathogen Listeria monocytogenes in lot number 617 of its Ouleout.

Consumers are being told that if they have any of these cheese from Vulto Creamery to throw them out immediately.

Healthy individuals may experience short-term symptoms including fever, severe headache, nausea, stiffness, abdominal pain and diarrhea, but the infection can also cause miscarriages, stillbirths and fetal infection.

There have been six confirmed cases of listeria monocytogenes in Connecticut, Florida, New York and Vermont since September 1, 2016. Two of six people who ate the cheese contracted a rare, but serious bacterial disease, officials said. Ill people ranged in age from less than one year to 89, with a median age of 55. The cheeses had been distributed nationwide, with most selling in the Northeastern and mid-Atlantic states; California; Chicago; Portland, Oregon; and the District of Columbia.

Stores including Whole Foods have issued their own recalls related to the products in multiple states including NY, where the bulk of the outbreaks-though not the deaths-have occurred.
