DeNiro Cheese of Youngstown Ohio Recalls Sausage Due to Listeria Risk

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced December 19, 2008 that DeNiro Cheese, a Youngstown, Ohio, firm, is recalling approximately one pound of Sopressata sausage products that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.  The sausage product was produced on Oct. 9, 2008, and was sent to an Italian specialty retailer in Boardman, Ohio.

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease.  Listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy.
