Listeria: what is the procedure to follow?
If you have this batch of mozzarella, the Hazardous Product Alerts site recommends not consuming it. You can return the product to your point of sale. A refund will then be offered to you as compensation.
Moreover, if you have consumed this batch and symptoms appear (fever, body aches, headaches), it is strongly advised to consult your doctor without delay. As the Rappel Conso site reminds us, “Listeriosis is a disease that can be serious”. Hence the importance of consulting a health professional. The incubation period for listeriosis can be up to eight weeks.
As for pregnant women, they must be particularly vigilant. Severe forms with neurological complications and maternal or fetal damage may occur. Immunocompromised people as well as the elderly should be equally attentive to the symptoms of a listeria infection.
