TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned people not to eat recalled cheese linked to a listeria outbreak that has infected at least six people.

A CDC food safety alert Friday said experts are investigating the outbreak, which is linked to brie and camembert cheese made by Old Europe Cheese, Inc.

At least five people were hospitalized after becoming infected by the dangerous bacteria, the food safety alert said.

The cheese affected by the recall was sold under multiple brand names at the following stores nationwide, although it could be found in others:

  • Whole Foods
  • Albertsons
  • Safeway
  • Meijer
  • Harding’s
  • Shaw’s
  • Price Chopper
  • Market Basket
  • Raley’s
  • Save Mart
  • Giant Foods
  • Stop & Shop
  • Fresh Thyme
  • Lidl, Sprouts
  • Athenian Foods

The six listeria cases have been linked to six different states, although no cases have been reported in Florida as of yet.

Healthy people who become infected with listeria usually suffer from diarrhea and fever and can recover without treatment.

In severe infections, the worst symptoms start within two weeks of eating contaminated food, although symptoms can develop the same day. These infections can lead to hospitalization and death, in the worst cases.

Severe symptoms can include headaches, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, convulsions, fever, and muscle aches.

A more serious case of listeria is more likely in those with weakened immune systems, pregnant people, and those over the age of 65. Pregnant individuals may have fever, fatigue, and muscle aches along with the risk of pregnancy loss, premature birth, and deadly infections in newborns.

The recalled cheese was said to have best-by dates from Sept. 28, 2022, to Dec. 14, 2022. The products were also sold under the following brand names:
