For Immediate Release
To our valued customers,
Forever Cheese has decided to stop importing and selling all products produced by Fattorie Chiarappa Srl. Ricotta Salata Frescolina, Marte brand Roasted Ricotta and Hard Ricotta Salata will be discontinued immediately.
We are contacting all of our customers asking you to destroy whatever you have in house and to notify us so we may issue you a credit. This includes ALL lots and ALL production codes of Marte brand Frescolina Ricotta Salata cheese due to the possible contamination from Listeria Monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. However, we prefer at this time to be proactive and remove ALL products from the marketplace that we have imported from Fattorie Chiarappa.
