YAKIMA, Wash. -- A Yakima company is recalling three
types of Mexican-style soft cheeses sold in Washington and Oregon.
An Oregon official says the cheese has been linked to five
      Queseria Bendita said Friday it is recalling cheeses labeled
Queso Fresco, Panela and Requeson that are potentially contaminated
with listeria.
      Oregon Public Health Division senior epidemiologist William
Keene says two pregnant Oregon women were
sickened by listeria after eating the cheese. Keane says the four Oregon residents as well as a
Washington resident were hospitalized.
      The cheeses have been sold at Queseria Bendita's retail store
and were distributed in Washington and Oregon, where they are sold
in Hispanic markets.
