Some food from Stone Meadow Farm is contaminated, the state Department of Agriculture announced Thursday in a press release.
Samples of the dairy products were taken Dec. 12, which turned up positive tests for a bacteria called Staphylococcus Aureus. Symptoms of food poisoning include “severe nausea and vomiting, abdominal cramps and diarrhea.”
Anyone who purchased certain batches of raw milk cheese — 60-day aged Havarti cheese and 60-day aged Colby cheese — should discard it immediately or contact the farm.
“No illnesses have been reported that could be associated with the cheeses, which were sold between October 2016 and mid-December 2016,” according to the state. “Other products and batches of cheese from Stone Meadow Farm were not affected by the recall.”
Never miss a local story.
Stone Meadow Farm’s cheeses are sold at farmers markets in Centre and surrounding counties.
Anyone with possible symptoms from one of the cheeses should seek medical help.
