Four other people in New York and Florida reported feeling sick after eating Ouleout, the artisanal cheese, which is produced by Vulto Creamery in Walton, N.Y.Illnesses started on dates between Sept. 1 of last year to Jan. 22, the Food and Drug Administration said. All six people were hospitalized and two people died.Ouleout has been celebrated across the United States as much for its unusual back story as for its flavor: It was created by Jos Vulto, a Dutch artist linked to the Museum of Modern Art, who started making cheese in his apartment and aging it under a sidewalk in Brooklyn.Continue reading the main storyVulto Creamery, which produces Ouleout, said it was recalling the product, and, as a precautionary measure, three other soft wash-rind raw milk cheeses: Miranda, Heinennellie, and Willowemoc. “We are very busy working on this recall with FDA and our customers,” the creamery said in an email without offering details on the cause of the outbreak.
