Waterloo, WI -- Federal and state health officials are investigating a listeria outbreak that may be linked to cheese made in Wisconsin. One person has died in Minnesota. People have also gotten sick in Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. The cheese was made by Crave Brothers Farmstead Classic Cheeses in Waterloo, WI. Here is a list of the recalled cheeses from Crave Brothers' website.
- Les Frères (LF225 2/2.5#) with a make date of 7-1-13 or prior, packaged in white plastic with a green and gold label.
