CHEESE MANUFACTURED BY SEBASTOPOL COMPANY VOLUNTARILY RECALLED

CHEESE MANUFACTURED BY SEBASTOPOL COMPANY VOLUNTARILY RECALLED
 SACRAMENTO, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) and the California Department of Health Services (DHS) today announced that, effective immediately, the Del Campo Cheese Co. in Sebastopol is voluntarily recalling their cheese products.
 The recall follows the discovery of Listeria monocytogenes bacteria in a routine monthly sampling of the company's queso fresco cheese by inspectors with the CDFA's Milk and Dairy Foods Control Branch.
 Listeria bacteria carry listeriosis, a serious and sometimes fatal infection that may result in miscarriages or still births. Listeriosis also can be dangerous to small children, frail, elderly people and people with weak immune systems.
 There have been no reported illnesses associated with Del Campo cheese products. However, CDFA and DHS officials warn that people should not eat any of Del Campo's queso fresco cheese and that the cheese should be returned to the store where it was originally purchased. As a precautionary measure, Del Campo has notified their distributors to recall all of their cheese products.
 The contaminated cheese was manufactured on Sept. 18 of this year and was sold in 15- and 20-pound wheels under the name Del Campo. Queso fresco cheese purchased from the following locations may have come from the contaminated batch originally manufactured by Del Campo.
 San Francisco: Casa Lucas, Casa Felix, Dinos Produce, Evergreen Market, La Victoria Bakery, Triunfo
 South San Francisco: Latin Corner, Belmar Market
 Daly City: Vasquez Market
 San Rafael: Azteca Market
 Oakland: Hernandez Meat Market, Martinez Meats
 San Jose: Chaparral Meats
 CDFA inspectors are currently at the plant conducting a thorough investigation to determine the cause of the contamination. They will take environmental, product and ingredient samples as well as inspect the plant's equipment and review its manufacturing procedures. DHS will assist the CDFA by monitoring the recall to ensure tht products are quickly removed from the marketplace.
