WASHINGTON (AP) — After an outbreak of listeria linked with Hispanic-style cheese, one person has died and seven others have become ill, including three newborns.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday that the death was in California. Seven additional illnesses were in Maryland. All the Maryland victims had reported consuming soft or semi-soft Hispanic-style cheese that they purchased at different locations of the same grocery store chain.
According to NBC news, the agency says the cheese was probably produced by Roos Foods of Kenton, Del.
