FDA issues warning on raw-milk soft cheeses

first_img See also: Editor’s note: Based on a Food and Drug Administration news release, the original version of this story incorrectly listed Ranchero as one type of soft cheese that may be made from raw milk The FDA later issued a clarification saying that Ranchero is a trademark of the Cacique Co. of Industry, Calif., for a cheese made with pasteurized milk. Listeriosis, brucellosis, salmonellosis, and tuberculosis are among the illnesses the cheeses can spread, the agency said in a news release. Especially at risk are pregnant women, newborns, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems. Mar 14 FDA news releasehttp://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/2005/ucm108420.htm Particularly hazardous are raw-milk soft cheeses from Mexico and Central American countries, the agency said. It recommended that consumers not eat any unripened, raw-milk soft cheeses from Mexico, Nicaragua, or Honduras. “Data show that they are often contaminated with pathogens,” the statement said. Mar 16, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – Soft cheeses made with raw milk can cause several serious infectious diseases, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned this week. “Recently, cases of tuberculosis in New York City have been linked to consumption of queso fresco style cheeses, either imported from Mexico or consumed in Mexico, contaminated with Mycobacterium bovis,” the statement said. The agency also warned against eating raw-milk soft cheeses bought at flea markets or from door-to-door sellers or carried in luggage from Mexico, Nicaragua, or Honduras. Raw-milk soft cheese from any source carries some risk, officials added. Queso fresco–style cheeses, popular among Hispanics, include Queso Panela, Asadero, and Blanco, among other types, according to the FDA. They may be imported or produced in the United States.last_img read more

Djakadam swoops for on-song duo

first_img The top trainer and jockey respectively at the Cheltenham Festival, the latest Mullins and Walsh representative was a 1-6 favourite after he bolted up on his second start in Ireland at Gowran Park a month ago. Walsh kept things simple in the Limerick Races Congratulate World Hurdle Winner Solwhit Hurdle, bouncing out in front from flag-fall, and had most of his rivals cooked a long way from home. Press Association Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh continued their fantastic week as Djakadam justified cramped odds with an all-the-way victory at Limerick.center_img Courage, a long way behind Djakadam at Gowran Park, made more of a race of it on this occasion, but was still seven lengths behind at the line. Walsh said: “He beat Courage plenty far the last day, so he was entitled to do it again. He can’t do any more than win, I suppose. I’d imagine he’ll step up in class now. He was bought to be a chaser and that’s what he will do.” Unoccupied ran out a wide-margin winner of the Newton Abbot Racecourse Handicap Hurdle for Edward O’Grady and Mark Enright. A 6-1 shot following a disappointing performance at Naas three weeks ago, the seven-year-old pulled right away in the home straight, safely negotiating the final couple of obstacles to seal a 12-length verdict. The Charles Byrnes-trained Whiskey Hall was a heavily-backed 2-1 favourite on his first start since finishing second in this race a year ago, but once again had to make do with the runner-up spot. last_img read more
