HARTFORD, Connecticut -- (WTIC) The Department of Public Health is investigating after a Connecticut resident died after eating recalled cheese.
The FDA issued a safety recall for all lots of Vulto Creamery's Ouleout, Miranda, Heinennellie, and Willowemoc soft wash-rind raw milk cheeses after they found Listeria contamination in the Ouleout cheese.
Listeria is a bacterium that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, pregnant women, and others with a weakened immune systems. People have been sickened by the outbreak in Connecticut, Florida, New York, and Vermont. Two of the people sickened have died, including a Connecticut resident, officials confirmed Thursday.
The FDA says the cheeses were distributed nationwide, most being sold at the retail locations in the North East, Mid-Atlantic States, California, Chicago, Portland, and Washington D.C.
If you have any of these cheeses, you're advised to throw them out immediately.
Officials are saying that refrigerators or display cases with the cheese should be washed and sanitized, as well as any cutting boards or cheese knives. Hands should be washed with warm water and soap following the cleaning.
We've all seen the rainbow bagel, but now there's a RAINBOW GRILLED CHEESE. Good thing it doesn't exist in the US (yet), because obviously people would be lining up for it. Hong Kong #EEEEEATS 📸: @hkfoodiexblogger

我地既特色吐司 "開心首選" 係由紅色番茄味, 綠色羅勒葉味, 藍色薰衣草味組成。 這幾款法國進口的顏色芝士都係經過我地精挑細選採購回來。選用比較溫和既味道，是希望可以比較容易讓香港的大眾接受。 如果你是想試出其真正味道，我們會建議大家點選個別的味道，作為吐司的口味; 例如"芝心蕃尋味"為你件吐司的口味，再加一至兩款配料另其口感更豐富。
