The items are to be returned to the stores. The purchase price will be refunded.

The cheese maker "asks its customers not to consume this product and to bring it back to the point of sale where they bought it," the product recall said.

Deadly courses possible

Listeria are bacteria that can cause so-called “listeriosis” in humans.

"Although listeriosis rarely occurs, it often takes a severe course that requires inpatient treatment and is associated with a high mortality rate," explains the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) on its website.

"The symptoms in infected people vary and range from mild flu-like symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea to serious infections such as meningitis and other potentially life-threatening complications," said the experts.

According to EFSA, the elderly, pregnant women, newborns and people with a weakened immune system are among the groups who are more susceptible to Listeria infections. (ad)
