Posted February 24th, 2014 @ 4:30pm by KFBK News

A Delaware company has recalled 16 varieties of cheese after some of them were linked to a death in California and illnesses in newborns. The CDC says the cheeses produced by Roos Foods are linked to a listeria outbreak. The recalled products are the company's Mexicana, Amigo, Santa Rosa De Lima and Anita brands.

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. All the Maryland victims reported consuming the cheese. Three of those sickened were newborns; it is unclear if the death was one of the newborns.
