U.S and state regulatory agencies say they are conducting a multistate investigation of Listeria contaminated cheese that may be responsible for one death.
The soft Brie-style cheese manufactured by Crave Brothers Farmstead Classics has been linked to a death of an older adult in Minnesota and the miscarriage of a baby, Food Safety News reported. The others infected were in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Minnesota.
Early testing by the Minnesota Department of Health and Agriculture indicated the presence of Listeria in cheese samples. Further confirmation is being awaited.
