That's a whooooole lotta cheese!
If you like your ricotta cheese imported from Italy, well, you should probably watch out for little bit — about 880 wheels of ricotta salata, or roughly 4,800 pounds, from Forever Cheese has been recalled because of listeria!
If you don't know what listeria is, it's like a nasty version of salmonella. This particular cheese fiasco is linked to 14 illnesses and one death.
The brand is Frescolina, which is one batch manufactured in Italy's Puglia region. They would not, however, name the Italian company that manufactured it.
