Caribou Coffee fruit and cheese plates sold at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport have been recalled for Listeria. On October 7, Cut Fruit Express of Inver Grove Heights, MN issued a recall for 6.2-oz  Caribou Coffee Fruit and Cheese Plates because they contain brie cheese that was recalled after being linked to a Listeria outbreak.

The recalled fruit and cheese plates were sold at the airport location from September 26 through October 5 in clear plastic packages with “best if used by dates” of 9/30/2022, 10/2/2022, 10/4/2022, 10/7/2022, and 10/9/2022. Consumers who purchased the snacks should not eat them as Listeria can cause serious illness and death. Among pregnant women, Listeria can cause miscarriage and stillbirth.

Symptoms of a Listeria infection can begin to appear within 24 hours after eating contaminated food, but sometimes it can take as long as 70 days for them to develop. These symptoms include high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, other muscle stiffness, confusion, loss of balance, nausea, and abdominal pain.

Listeria Outbreak Linked to Cheese

An ongoing Listeria outbreak linked to brie and camembert cheeses sold under a variety of brand names has sickened six people between August 2017 and August 2022. The cheeses were made by Old Europe Cheese Inc. in Benton Harbor, MI, and sold at dozens of grocery stores nationwide.

Five of the six people included in this outbreak became so sick they needed to be hospitalized.
