Listeria usually manifests itself within 14 days of infection with diarrhea and fever. In particular, pregnant women, the elderly and people with a weakened immune system can develop more severe illnesses with blood poisoning and meningitis. In pregnant women, the unborn child can be harmed, even without symptoms.

People who have eaten this food and develop severe or persistent symptoms should seek medical attention and report a possible Listeria infection. Pregnant women who have eaten this food should seek medical treatment and advice without symptoms. This does not make sense for other people without symptoms.

April 14, 2019: Cheese "Marquise de Siméon" is being recalled for listeria

In cheese production, possible contamination with listeria is a serious problem. Controls of the product "Marquise de Siméon" have recently shown an increased level of Listeria Monacytogenes, which is a health hazard for consumers. The French manufacturer "Fromagère de la Brie" has therefore launched a comprehensive recall.

The "Marquise de Siméon" cheese is affected by the current recall with all best before dates from February 18, 2019 and the lot identification "EAN: 4046896107702". "FR 77.436.001" is given as the manufacturer's identity mark. The cheese was available in various discount markets and supermarket chains. "The product is not suitable for consumption," the manufacturer warned. A return can take place in the shop where the cheese was purchased. Customers will of course be reimbursed the purchase price.

Consumption is strongly discouraged

In view of the health risks that listeria can pose, the French cheese maker has urged all consumers "not to consume the product and to return the affected food to their store or to destroy the food." Product.

Watch for signs of infection

If you have already eaten the cheese, attention should be paid to possible signs of infection in the coming weeks. The incubation period can last up to eight weeks, so that a connection with the original source of infection is often not immediately apparent. An infection with Listeria monocytogenes can include diarrhea, abdominal pain, fever and headache, but also impairments such as paralysis or tremors. Children, immunocompromised people, the elderly and pregnant women often have a particularly severe course and there is also a risk of miscarriage in pregnant women. If there are signs of infection in people who have consumed the product mentioned, they should urgently consult their doctor and advise them of the consumption of the product, according to the manufacturer.

Numerous callbacks are currently being called. For example, lamb fillets were recalled from the market due to salmonella. The baby bouncers are another important recall. Deaths have already occurred here. (sb, fp)
