(UNDATED) - Kenny's Farmhouse Cheese is voluntarily recalling Kentucky Rose, Kentucky Bleu, Awe-Brie and Tomme de Nena. This recall is being made with the knowledge of the FDA.

According to a company press release, Kenny's Farmhouse Cheese recalled this product due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. To date, there have been no instances of illness reported.

The Kentucky Rose, Kentucky Bleu, Awe-Brie and Tomme de Nena was sold to farmers markets, restaurants, distributors and retail stores in FL, IN, IL, KY, OH, TN and VA between August 22, 2012 and September 25, 2012.
