The product, which is labeled “Caseificio Voglie di Latte” Burrata, has been sold in retail stores and restaurants throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and Southern California.

The California Department of Food and Agriculture discovered that certain products sampled contained the bacteria, which can cause severe food poisoning.
