GRANDVIEW, Wash. (AP) -- Del Bueno of Grandview, Wash., says it's recalling 16 oz. packages of its Queso Fresco Fresh Cheese. The cheese has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria.

The organism can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail and elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems. Healthy people may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, headache, stiffness and nausea.

The cheese was distributed to retail markets in Washington and one in Hermiston, Ore. It is packaged in round 16 oz. clear plastic and is marked on the back with a code date. All codes between May 24, 2010, through May 30, 2010, are being recalled.

The company said Monday no illnesses have been reported.
