Inspectors haven’t yet determined the source of a Midwest listeria outbreak linked to a Wisconsin cheesemaker, the company’s president said.
The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) is urging consumers who may have purchased Les Frères cheese made by Crave Brothers Farmstead Classics Cheese, a Wisconsin producer, to dispose of it, as it has been linked to a multi-state outbreak of listeriosis.
The smoked salmon is being recalled due to listeria concerns.
A man contracted listeria after eating a cantaloupe purchased at an Aldi store in the South Side Jeffrey Manor neighborhood last September, a negligence lawsuit filed Tuesday claims.
So far, Illinois has seen only one confirmed case of listeriosis from tainted cantaloupe, but cases could be showing up well past Halloween.
