‘Hay on Wye’ unpasteurised goat’s cheese recalled due to the presence of listeria

Neal’s Yard Creamery in Dorstone, Herefordshire, is recalling its ‘Hay on Wye’ unpasteurised goat’s cheese because high levels of listeria have been found in the product.

The product below is contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Symptoms caused by this organism can be similar to flu and include high temperature, muscle ache or pain, chills, feeling or being sick and diarrhoea. However, in rare cases, the infection can be more severe, causing serious complications, such as meningitis.

Some people are more vulnerable to listeria infections, including those over 65 years of age, pregnant women and their unborn babies, babies less than one month old and people with weakened immune systems.

Product: ‘Hay-on-Wye’ unpasteurised goat’s cheese
Pack size: 80g
Made on: 18 May 2016
‘Best before’ date: 20 June 2016

If you have bought the above product, do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.
