When it comes to recalls, the most worrying are on cars and food. The reason for this is obvious, as they present the most risk to us when there is an issue. The latest food recall to worry consumers is the ‘Costco Cheese Recall’ Consumers have been advised not to eat this food item.
The cheese affected by this recall is ‘Bravo Farms Dutch Style Raw Milk Gouda Cheese’ purchased from October 1 to November 1 2010. For those customers who purchased any, they should take the cheese back to any Costco store to receive a full refund.
The reason for the recall is due to a risk of E. coli O157:H7, which as we know is not nice to have. Some symptoms include diarrhea, abdominal cramps and blood in your stools. Most people will be able to get over this illness, but young children and the elderly can become seriously ill.
The FDA is now working with Costco in labs to understand why this problem has occurred. For more details on this visit the Costco website.
