Consumers are being warned not to eat a raw goat milk cheese made by The Maiden’s Creamery due to possible Listeria contamination, according to the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets.

“Wild meadow” raw goat milk cheese from The Maiden’s Creamery in South New Berlin, Chenango County tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes during a routine sample taken on Feb. 20. On Feb. 23 the manufacturer was notified of the preliminary positive test result and the company voluntarily recalled the product. On March 2, the test results were confirmed, and the cheese will now be destroyed by the manufacturer.

The affected product is packaged in various sized of sealed flexible plastic packaging, with the plant number 36-1315, with a code of 101. All packages with this code are included in the recall.

The cheese product was sold at the Cooperstown Farmers’ Market in late Dec. 2017 and early Jan. 2018, and at the Sunflower Natural Foods Market in Woodstock beginning Jan. 10.

Products contaminated with Listeria can cause Listeriosis, a disease that causes mild flu-like symptoms in healthy people. However, it can lead to meningitis for those with compromised immune systems. The NYS Dept. of Agriculture and Markets says that pregnant women are also considered a high-risk group because Listeriosis can result in stillbirths.

If you have questions about the recalled cheese product, you can call Mark Harvey at 607-859-2227.
