Listeria causes the listeriosis infection, which can be especially dangerous to pregnant women and elderly people. Its incubation period can last up to two months.
If you have consumed a cheese product included in the recall and later experience a fever, with or without a headache and muscle aches, you should go to your GP and tell them about the recall.
