All the above batches have been withdrawn from sale.
Some of these products were however offered for sale prior to the recall.
Consequently anybody who might have purchased the cheese belonging to one of the batches described above is advised not to eat it, to destroy it, or ask for a reimbursement.
Anyone who has consumed the "products” mentioned above, and who develops a fever, either isolated or associated with a headache, is advised to consult a doctor, informing the latter that she/he has eaten the cheese in question.
