I just got an email from Coles advising of a massive cheese recall.  It's in the SMH as well.

Two deaths are linked to this

Here is the full list of recalled cheeses

Thanks for that. I don't believe I have any of those luckily. I do love my cheese!

Worring thing is that listeria can have a 70 day incubation period and I know I've eaten at least a kilo of cheese over Christmas - including some Jindi and Coles branded.


Here's a link to symptoms.

I'm pretty sure the only brie I have eaten is King Island but I'll check with DH to be onthe safe side. Again thanks for the heads up.

Thanks OP.

I haven't eaten Jindi Brie for about 9 months thankfully.

CG there is a link in the DIG groups and the list that Coles sent you is not complete.  Its not just those 2 brands.

I had some Emporium brie that I was looking forward to.  even though its not the triple cream type, I still chucked it. Better to be safe than sorry I think

So what we do if we bought it and already ate it? Just thank out lucky stars we didn't get sick? And keep our fingers crossed we don't get sick?

I guess so! I am not brand loyal so will buy whatever I see and takes my fancy. I am pretty sure I have eaten Jindi cheese in the last little bit but can not be entirely sure sad.gif  I am not worried about me but my daughter adores soft cheeses and I know that if we had some she definitely ate it sad.gif  I suppose the one good thing about this is that the doctors should be looking for it rather than just dismissing it as gastro or some such. I hope

Told my Dad to just throw out any cheese just in case. Immuno compromised it is not worth the risk.

If you have already eaten, please note it can take up to 70 days to get sick.

We've eaten a lot of Jindi since Xmas. DS1 and DS4 both love soft cheese (as well as DH and I) so I'm worried for them. sad.gif

Unless you are pregnant, elderly or immunocompromised, you would be highly unlikely to get really unwell anyway. People can have listerosis and not know it. Symptoms range from nothing or mild cold like symptoms to death.

Listeriosis (Listeria monocytogenes infection) facts

    Listeriosis is a disease caused by a gram-positive bacterium named Listeria that can penetrate and replicate inside human cells.
    Most people who are infected have few or no symptoms; when symptoms are present, they usually consist of fever, muscle aches, nausea, or diarrhea. Some people may develop more severe symptoms such as meningitis, mental changes, brain abscesses, or death.
    Although most people have self-limited disease, people with risk factors such as an altered or depressed immune response (for example, pregnant females and their fetus or newborn, cancer patients, AIDS patients) are at higher risk for getting the disease and some are more likely to have more severe disease.

My 6yo with major gut issues (possibly Crohn's) ate loads. As did my toddler. It's them I'm worried about.

Karla, if you are worried, go see your GP for advice.

I'd actually say three because unfortunately a women that was pregnant miscarried - this is why I think that what some people call 'listeria hysteria' is actually not that bad a thing Yes it is rare but this goes to show that it does happen.


Please check the link provided that is on the Jindi site as they make cheeses for other companies like Harris Farm markets as well.

There's nothing to be done unless they get sick though is there? It's hard with DS1 as he ALWAYS has a sore tummy though.

Sometimes I wish I didn't read these things, then I could continue living in my innocent little bubble and not worry. wink.gif

Arrgh I used Jindi triple brie on sandwiches I took to a lunch play date last week!  One of my friends there is pregnant.  I don't think she ate any...

And I have a wheel of Jindi camembert I was looking forward to eating tonight.

I'd say it was the milk rather than the Coles brand given how many brands were affected.

Yup! And one article said the listeria incubation time can be 70 days - so if you ate it (as I did) over Christmas, you could get it in March! I guess just be super vigilant about illness symptoms in that time...

Absolutely! I would take them as a precautionary thing, even if they can't do anything they might be able to put your mind at ease. Remember, we are all just internet randoms with no medical degree wink.gif

These notices just always annoy me how they go on about how dangerous it is, do not eat it under any circumstances etc but never tell you what to do if you already ate it. It's not the first time it's happened and it always annoys me. But I'm easily annoyed by things like that. wink.gif

I think we are supposed to 'keep calm and carry on'. Or something equally vague biggrin.gif

Thanks coffeegirl for the heads up and the pm.

Will certainly be talking to GP on Monday regarding this as DS is displaying symptoms. We have eaten cheese but I can't remember what brands we've eaten.

DS hasn't got the strongest immune system so a mild case wouldn't surprise me!!
