Listeria infections can cause serious and, in some instances, fatal infections in young children, elderly adults, and pregnant women or those with weakened immune systems. Symptoms of Listeria illnesses include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Listeria can also cause miscarriages, stillbirths, and fetal infections in pregnant women.

Whole Foods Market has not received any reports of illness from the recalled cheese products.
