These symptoms can be followed (5 to 8% of cases) by severe kidney complications, mainly in children. People who have consumed the products mentioned above and who present this type of symptoms are invited to consult their doctor without delay, notifying him of this consumption as well as the place and date of purchase. In the absence of symptoms within 10 days after consuming the affected products, there is no need to worry and consult a doctor. Generally speaking, the health authorities recall that as a precaution, raw milk and cheeses made from raw milk should not be consumed by young children, particularly those under 5 years old; preferred cooked cheeses (such as Emmental, Comté, etc.), processed cheese spreads and cheeses made from pasteurized milk. The same recommendation should be followed for pregnant women, immunocompromised people and the elderly.
