Florida Company Recalls Salvadorean Cheese for Listeria Risk

Florida Company Recalls Salvadorean Cheese for Listeria Risk

January 6, 2020 — Limeño LLC of Palm Springs, Florida has recalled Salvadorean string cheese for making pupusas after a product tested positive for Listeria contamination.

The recall involves 1-pound (16-ounce) blocks of a semi-soft cheese that is labeled as Salvadorean String Cheese, or “Quesillo Salvadoreño Para Pupusa.”

This type of cheese is used to make pupusas, which are a popular cheese-stuffed flatbread dish from El Salvador and Honduras.

The cheese was sold through grocery stores and mail orders. It has a blue and white label, comes in a 1-lb. clear plastic vacuum package, is marked with Lot #1041020 on the top, and a blank expiration date.

No illnesses were reported as of the recall date on January 2, 2020.

The recall was issued after a 1-pound block of the cheese tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes bacteria during routine tests by health officials in Florida.

Listeria can survive freezing and grow in food stored in a refrigerator. Infections often invade the bloodstream and cause meningitis or other serious complications, including death. Pregnant women may suffer a stillbirth, miscarriage, or infection of the newborn.
