UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) Health officials have confirmed a sixth case of listeria that’s linked to three award-winning Wisconsin cheeses. The U-S Centers for Disease Control said the latest case was reported in Texas. That’s after five other listeria cases were reported in early July, when Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese of Waterloo recalled its Les Freres, Petit Frere, and Petit Frere with Truffles. All three have won awards from the American Cheese Society.
One person in Minnesota died from the small outbreak. Another had a miscarriage, and three others were hospitalized after eating contaminated cheese.
Besides Minnesota, cases were reported in Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio. No cases were reported in Wisconsin.
Government regulators are reviewing Crave Brothers’ corrective actions before allowing production to resume.
