RECALL: Multiple lots of Andante Dairy cheeses lack of proper pasteurization

 Multiple lots of cheeses made by Andante Dairy in Petaluma, California are the subject of a recall and quarantine order announced by California State Veterinarian Dr. Annette Whiteford.

The quarantine is based on a determination that a lack of proper pasteurization could have allowed dangerous pathogens to survive in the products. No illnesses have been reported, and the processor is cooperating with the recall.

The recalled cheeses were sold in sizes from five to eight ounces, with no code date or variety information on the packages. The cheeses were sold mainly to retail markets, restaurants and cheese shops in California, with very limited distribution in Chicago and New York.

Three varieties of Andante Dairy cheese exempt from the quarantine are Musette, Tomme Dolce, and Etude. Consumers are urged to discard any other varieties from this producer.  MORE

Listeria Contamination in Queso Fresco, Fresh Cheese

The product is packaged in a rigid 14 oz. plastic tub that displayed the plant number 36-0128 and a code of 071512. This consumer warning affects all packages with this code. The product was packaged in containers bearing the following product names:

Mexicali Queso Fresco Mexicano, Mexican Style Fresh Cheese;
Acatlan Queso Fresco, Fresh Cheese;
Mi Quesito Mexicano, Mexican Cheese; and
Quesillo Ecuatoriano, Ecuadorian Style Cheese.





A routine sample of the cheese, taken by an inspector from the Division of Milk Control and Dairy Services on June 20, 2012, was subsequently tested by the Department’s Food Laboratory and discovered to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. On June 25, 2012 the manufacturer was notified of a preliminary positive test result and voluntarily recalled the product from their customers. Test results were confirmed on June 29, 2012.  Subsequent samples will be taken to verify that the product is free of pathogens.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail, or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy persons may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

An outbreak of a rare strain of salmonella poisoning linked to recalled dog food has infected at least 14 people in nine states, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention said.

Diamond Pet Foods produced the dry dog food at a South Carolina plant. The company voluntarily recalled three dry dog food products last month, the CDC said in a statement on Thursday.

Infections were reported from October 8, 2011, to April 22, and five people were hospitalized. Cases were reported in Alabama, Connecticut, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Seven of 10 ill people said they had had contact with a dog in the week before becoming sick. Five sick people recalled the type of dog food with which they had contact, the statement said.

The bacteria is salmonella infantis, a rare strain, the CDC said.

Salmonella infections often cause diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps and usually last four to seven days. Most people recover without treatment, but in rare cases it can be fatal.

Diamond Pet Foods has recalled bags of Diamond Naturals Lamb Meal & Rice dry dog food, Diamond Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul Adult Light Formula dry dog food and Diamond Puppy Formula dry dog food.
