NSW Health said that as of January 18, cases of listeria have been identified in Victoria, NSW, Queensland, Tasmania and Western Australia, with two men dying and a woman miscarrying.
A further seven cases of listeria identified in the ongoing national investigation has linked the serious illness to soft cheeses.
Jindi manufactured cheeses has been identified, with the company voluntarily recalling its cheese products from all the batches manufactured until January 7.
Chief scientist of NSW Food Authority Dr Lisa Szabo advises that affected Jindi cheeses should be returned to the retailer for a refund or binned.
"Pregnant women, and the elderly, in particular need to aware of this recall. Sadly, a woman in NSW has miscarried after contracting listeria", said clinical lead of infection prevention and control at Western Sydney Local Health District Professor Lynn Gilbert.
"The infection will cause minor or no symptoms in the vast majority of healthy people who may contract it, but is particularly dangerous for some vulnerable groups such as pregnant women and the elderly. Early symptoms of listeria include fever, headache, tiredness, aches and pains."
The full list of affected products are available from the NSW food authority website.
