Vulto Creamery of Walton, N.Y., is recalling all lots of Ouleout, Miranda, Heinennellie, and Willowemoc soft wash-rind raw milk cheeses.
Testing results from the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) found Ouleout lot # 617 positive for Listeria monocytogenes, and New York Department of Agriculture and Markets found possible contamination of Ouleout lot #623.
In the first expansion earlier this month, the company disclosed that testing results have identified Ouleout product contamination, similar to the strain isolated from a cluster outbreak of Listeriosis responsible for six illnesses and two confirmed deaths.
The soft raw milk cheeses were distributed nationwide, with most being sold at retail locations in the Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic States, California, Chicago, Portland and Washington, D.C.
