Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese Company of Waterloo, Wisconsin has issued a voluntary recall of three of their products after several people have become sick after consuming the cheese.  Five people have contracted Listeria from the product, in states including Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, and Ohio.  All victims were hospitalized, with one suffering a miscarriage and one dying from the illness.  Whole Foods, a distributer of the Crave Brothers cheese, announced it was recalling the product on July 5.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have identified the following products as tainted with Listeria: Les Freres, Petit Frere, and Petit Frere with Truffles.  Crave Brothers also distributes the cheese through the mail and other retailers.  The bacteria leads the illness "listeriosis," causing symptoms such as fever, muscle aches, and gastrointestinal symptoms.  Seek medical attention if you have consumed the products affected by this recall, and discard any of these products that you may have purchased.
