Listeriosis, a disease that can be serious

If these batches of cheese have been recalled, it is because they are likely to cause listeriosis, a serious infection caused by the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes.

The Consumer Reminder site therefore invites consumers to “who have consumed the products mentioned above and who present with fever, isolated or accompanied by headaches, and body aches, to consult their doctor and report this consumption“.

Moreover,”serious forms with neurological complications and maternal or fetal damage in pregnant women can also sometimes occur“, the site further specifies.

Fragile individuals (pregnant women, immunocompromised people and the elderly) must therefore be particularly attentive to these symptoms.

The products must not be consumed and it is advisable to contact your point of sale who will inform you of the compensation until the end of the recall procedure.

For tomme cheese, this is set for 02/18/2024 and you can contact 06.46.92.03.89.

For Morbier, it is possible to call 08.00.90.03.43 until 02/12/2024.
