The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) they warned that fresh cheeses, cheeses or cottage cheese from the company based in Paterson, New Jersey should not be consumed.

The CDC reported four sick people in Maryland, four in New York, two in Virginia and one in Connecticut.

Sick people range in age from less than a year to 75, with a median age of 54. Ten people are Hispanic and six of them are women.

Of the ten people with available information, all have been hospitalized and one of them died in the state of Maryland, according to the latest CDC update on this outbreak.

“The actual number of people ill in an outbreak is likely to be greater than the number reported, and the outbreak may not be limited to states with known illnesses,” the federal agency said.

This is because some people recover without medical attention and are not tested for listeria and there may be more patients, as it generally takes 2 to 4 weeks to determine if a sick person is part of an outbreak.

Of the eight patients interviewed, seven reported eating fresh, soft Hispanic-style cheeses from the El Abuelito Cheese brand.

Six of them indicated that they had eaten fresh cheese, two reported the El Abuelito brand and one more the Río Grande brand.

The company had already withdrawn from the stores the fresh cheeses of the El Abuelito, Río Grande and Río Lindo brands that had a sale date until March 28.

Likewise, the cheese from the brands El Abuelito, El Viejito, El Paisano, El Sabrosito, La Cima, Quesos Finos, San Carlos and Ideal with sale dates until April 16, and the cottage cheese from the brands El Abuelito were withdrawn from sale. and the Old Man with a sale date until March 14.

“Do not eat recalled fresh cheeses, cheeses, or cottage cheese,” the CDC warned. “Throw them away or return them to the place where you bought them.”

The notice recommended careful cleaning of the refrigerator, containers and surfaces that have been in contact with contaminated products and warned that listeria bacteria “can survive in the refrigerator and can easily spread to other foods and surfaces.”

Because listeria can cause serious infections, the CDC recommended that people at higher risk of becoming seriously ill from this cause should not eat any fresh cheese or Hispanic-style soft cheeses until more information is available.

These include pregnant people and their newborns, adults 65 and older, and people with weakened immune systems, such as those with cancer or on dialysis.

People who are not at higher risk for serious illness should ensure that the queso fresco and Hispanic-style soft cheeses they eat are labeled “made with pasteurized milk.”
