All of the recalled products contain cotija cheese.

"The cheese used to make these products has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals may suffer short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria infection can cause miscarriage and stillbirths among pregnant women," the FDA states.

Trader Joe's decided to recall all of its products that were manufactured with cotija cheese after the Rio-Lopez Foods recalled was announced earlier this week.
