Del Bueno of Grandview, Washington has issued a recall of all of its 16-ounce size packages of Queso Fresco Casero Fresh Cheese with a date stamp of Sept 14, 2011 over concerns the cheese is potentially contaminated with the foodborne pathogen, Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just announced.

Queso Fresco Casero Fresh Cheese was sold in retail markets in Washington and at the Pasco, Washington flea market. The cheese is packaged in round, clear, plastic 16-ounce packages, and is stamped on the back with a code date of “Sep 14 2011.”

Routine sampling under the Washington State Department of Agriculture program revealed that the recalled cheese is contaminated with Listeria. According to the FDA, Del Bueno is notifying its customers and requesting that they stop sales of this product. Del Bueno is working with FDA to conduct its recall.

Consumers who have purchased Del Bueno brand Queso Fresco are urged to return the defective cheese to the place of purchase for a full refund. Del Bueno can be reached at 1.425.503.3823 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time (PT).

Last year, Del Bueno recalled all size packages of Queso Fresco Fresh Cheese, Queso Panela Fresh Cheese, Requeson Mexican Style Ricotta Cheese, and Queso Enchilado Dry Cheese because those cheese had the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, as well. Also,
in April 2010, Del Bueno amended a prior recall of Queso Fresco Cheese, also over potential contamination with the Listeria pathogen. In that case, Del Bueno recalled all size packages of its Queso Fresco Fresh Cheese, which the Washington State Department of Agriculture ultimately linked to an illness.

Listeriosis, the food borne disease caused by the Listeria pathogen, is dangerous and can be deadly, causing serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals may suffer short-term symptoms, such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. In pregnant women, Listeriosis can result in miscarriage, stillbirth, or birth of a baby suffering from the infection.
Pregnant women are about 20 times likelier than others to be infected, with about one-third of all Listeriosis cases occurring during pregnancy.

Listeriosis can kill fetuses, prompt premature births, and can lead to hearing loss or brain damage in newborns and neurological effects and cardio respiratory failure in adults.
