    Maryland, Virginia and the District are all warning of a possible health risk associated with certain types of cheese.

    Both Maryland and D.C. warn of a possible listeria risk connected with Roos Foods. Both jurisdictions warn consumers not to buy the follow brands of cheese (all under the Roos Foods company): Santa Rosa de Lima, Amigo, Mexicana, Suyapa, La Chapina and La Purisima Crema Nica.

    In Virginia, the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services says listeria was found in a sample of  Cuajada en Terron (Fresh Cheese Curd) cheese in Northern Virginia, particularly at the Mega Mart located in Shopper's Square in Manassas. The product was sold in clear, unlabeled plastic bags held in the retail cheese display cooler.
