El Abuelito Queso Fresco potentially linked to Listeria monocytogenes
February 17, 2021 11:57 PM
Maryland, United States
The FDA, along with CDC and state and local partners, is investigating an ongoing multistate outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes linked to Hispanic-style fresh and soft cheeses.
As part of this outbreak investigation, the Connecticut Department of Public Health collected product samples of El Abuelito-brand Hispanic-style fresh and soft cheeses from a store where a sick person bought cheeses. Sample analysis showed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in samples of El Abuelito Queso Fresco sold in 10 oz packages, marked as Lot A027 with an expiration date of 02/26/2021. Samples are currently undergoing Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) analysis to determine if the Listeria monocytogenes found in these samples is a match to the outbreak strain. At this time, there is not enough evidence to determine if this outbreak is linked to El Abuelito Queso Fresco.
FDA advises consumers, restaurants, and retailers not to eat, sell, or serve El Abuelito Queso Fresco cheese until more information is known. FDA and state partners are working with the firm to recall the affected lot and to determine if additional products should be recalled. Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.
As of February 17, 2021, there are reports of seven people infected with the outbreak strain of Listeria monocytogenes in Connecticut, Maryland, New York, and Virginia. Six of the seven ill people are Hispanic. Of the four people interviewed, three reported eating at least one type of Hispanic-style fresh and soft cheeses, and all three reported eating queso fresco.

“I made a bowl of cheese puffs. I didn’t use a paper towel because I hate how the middle part is stitched together and I didn’t want them falling all over the place on the sides. I got a bowl because I wasn’t going to eat them all at once I was watching a movie. Later I got extreme stomach pains and... it lasted for over 12 hours. I had gas I haven’t threw up yet but I have the urge to poop and throw up. I don’t eat snacks like that at all . Someone help pls ”

“The dirties market shopping experience and quite rude. I bought lunch from the deli and some fresh produce to prepare at home. While eating lunch, I soaked the vegetable in white vinegar to clean and i noticed the water had sediments of what appears to be dirt and tiny little bugs. I had to rinse it... several times with water and vinegar before the water was clean. My son finished the sandwhich and became ill with diarrhea and dry vomiting. I will never return to this place and I suggest others approach with caution. ”
