The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for the Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have launched an investigation into a multi-state listeria outbreak that has been linked to raw milk cheese made by Vulto Creamery in Walton, New York.
According to FOX News, Vulto Creamery issued recalls for all lots of their Oulet, Mirand, Heinennellie, and Willowmec soft wash-rind raw milk after two samples tested positive for listeria monocytogenes. Samples collected from one of the victim’s home tested positive for the same strain of listeria.
The CDC has confirmed six victims who have fallen ill due to the listeria outbreak. The illnesses were recorded in Connecticut, Florida, new York, and Vermont and the victims ages range from newborn to 89-years.
