Escherichia Coli again, new recall for Castelmagno DOP cheese

The Ministry of Health has issued a new recall notice for two batches of cheese Castelmagno DOP due to the presence of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli. The affected cheeses, branded Beppino Occelli and Terre d’Italia by Carrefour, have lot numbers 23147011 and 23154011 and expiry dates between 02/03/2024 and 11/05/2024 (12/05/2024 only for Beppino Occelli brand cheese).

This is the second recall for Castelmagno DOP cheese in recent months. The previous recall occurred in mid-February for a batch produced by Società Agricola La Bruna di Fiandino Davide & C. and matured by Beppino Occelli company. Consumers are urged to avoid consuming the recalled products and can return them to the store where they were purchased.

Escherichia coli is a bacterium that can cause intestinal diseases and extra-intestinal infections. Symptoms of an Escherichia coli infection include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, nausea, and vomiting. Prevention measures include cooking food at a high temperature, avoiding risky foods, washing hands thoroughly, and maintaining personal hygiene.

It is important to take precautions to prevent Escherichia coli infections and to follow recall notices issued by health authorities to ensure consumer safety.
