Atlanta--Listeria monocytogenes has been found in a sample of Ricotta Salata cheese. The conatminant was found when the Georgia Department of Agriculture collected a sample of the cheese under its food safety program.

The contamination was found in a package with a marked sell by date of 01/21/08. The cheese, sold under the brand name Locatelli, is imported from Italy. Consumption of food with the contaminant can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially serious disease.

Listeriosis can cause meningitis, miscarriages, stillbirths, and as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections to infants, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems such as persons with chronic diseases or taking chemotherapy for cancer.
