July 8, 2009: FDA Files Complaint Against Peregrina Cheese

FDA Files Complaint Against Peregrina Cheese, Food Safety News – Peregrina Cheese, Brooklyn, NY, has had a complaint filed against it regarding repeated warnings to clean up its manufacturing practices. Since 2003 the company has been cited for having Listeria monocytogenes in both its cheese and plant production areas. In addition, the general environment of the plant was found to be in poor condition.

Because Listeria poses a potential threat to the health of the consumer, the FDA will pursue aggressive actions in order to halt the company’s unsafe practices by any means necessary.

About Listeria

Initial symptoms of listeriosis may include fever, muscle aches, and , occasionally, gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea or diarrhea. If the infection spreads to the nervous system, symptoms may include headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, or convulsions.

Signs of illness typically appear from 3- 4 weeks following the consumption of contaminated food. However, symptoms can develop from one week to 90 days after exposure to Listeria.
