Roos Foods Expands Recall Linked to Sick Babies
DOVER, Del. (AP) — A Delaware company that recalled cheeses after some of the products were linked to a death in California and illnesses in newborns has expanded that recall to sour cream products.
The Delaware Division of Public Health said Friday that Roos Foods expanded its recall to include Crema Pura Mexicana Cultured Sour Cream produced at its Kenton plant. Anyone who has those products should destroy them.
The company recalled 16 varieties of cheese earlier last week. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the recalled products are linked to a listeria outbreak.
The products were distributed in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. The CDC said there was one death in California and seven illnesses in Maryland.
Three of those sickened were newborns.
