As far as listeria, while it is theoretically possible, cole slaw is not a typical food where it is found. Muscle aches, fever, vomiting and diarrhea are the more common symptoms. ...Read more

American cheese is made from pasterized milk, thus less chance of bacterial contamination. Listeria is a serious infection, but rather rare...7/million in us...For now, just monitor closely...If fever, abdominal pain, diarrhea etc..Consult doc...Otherwise, should be ok... Good luck. ...Read more
