Deli Meat and Cheese Recall – Listeria

First we were told to stop eating romaine lettuce, then avocados, next it was ground turkey, then ground beef, more recently sushi was added to the list and now… sounds like you may want to skip the deli counter! (click here for the details of this recall) The latest warning from the CDC involves a variety of deli meats and cheeses. The problem… listeria. The infections of the bacterium listeria monocytogenes have been reported in Michigan, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. Several have been hospitalized and one death has been attributed to this listeria outbreak. It is just us, or does this food recall/warning seem to becoming the norm?
