One has to wonder if Obama got a second term if we would start seeing more FDA “food recalls” that would be there to punish the companies that didn;t support him....
If you develop a listeria infection, you may experience:
Symptoms may begin a few days after you've eaten contaminated food, but it may take as long as two months before the first signs and symptoms of infection begin.
If the listeria infection spreads to your nervous system, signs and symptoms may include:
Confusion or changes in alertness
Loss of balance
Symptoms during pregnancy and for newborns During pregnancy, a listeria infection is likely to cause only mild signs and symptoms in the mother. The consequences for the baby, however, may be devastating. The baby may die unexpectedly before birth or experience a life-threatening infection within the first few days after birth.
As in adults, the signs and symptoms of a listeria infection in a newborn can be subtle, but may include:
Little interest in feeding
When to see a doctor If you've eaten a food that's been recalled because of a listeria outbreak, pay close attention to any possible signs or symptoms of illness. If you experience fever, muscle aches, nausea or diarrhea, contact your doctor. The same goes for illness after eating a potentially contaminated product, such as foods made with unpasteurized milk or poorly heated hot dogs or deli meats.
If you experience a high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, confusion or sensitivity to light, seek emergency care. These signs and symptoms may indicate bacterial meningitis, a life-threatening complication of a listeria infection.
Not much of a cheese shop, is it?
“It’s not much of a cheese shop, is it?”
SHUT THAT BLOODY BOUZOUKI UP!
But it’s very clean, and uncontaminated by lysteria.
Hmmm.... to eat the cheese or not to eat the cheese. It may kill me, but on the other hand, it’s cheese. I think I’ll risk it.
Ricotta is the easiest cheese to make at home, just make it yourself and be happy
