May 31, 2023 — One person was hospitalized with a severe Listeria infection after eating cheese from the Massachusetts-based Cricket Creek Farm LLC.
In response, Cricket Creek Farm recalled about 165 units of Sophelise Cheese and 149 pounds of Tobasi Cheese due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.
The company said that Biotrax Testing Laboratory analyzed cheeses that were purchased by the sick person who was hospitalized and found that a batch of Sophelise cheese contained Listeria.
The Sophelise cheese was recalled, along with three batches of Tobasi cheese that were stored in close proximity to the Sophelise.
Cricket Creek Farm distributed the cheeses in Massachusetts and New York at certain retail stores, farmers markets, and restaurants.
The company is warning people not to eat Sophelise cheese with product code 087055 that was distributed after March 29, 2023.
The recall also includes Tobasi cheese with product codes 315, 341, or 048. These cheeses were distributed between March 26, 2023 and May 26, 2023.
The FDA warns consumers that Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections, as well as pregnancy complications like miscarriage or stillbirth. It can take up to 70 days for symptoms to appear, such as a high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
