Massive Cheese Recall In Progress Due To Listeria

Massive Cheese Recall In Progress Due To Listeria

Popular cheese maker Sargento is recalling seven of its cheese products due to a potential Listeria contamination, the company announced.

Sargento also recalled some products that were packaged on the same line as the affected cheese.

A supplier notified Sargento that a Longhorn Colby cheese that supplied may contain a form of Listeria. The company reports that the products, which are sold exclusively through its deli counters, may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The cheese in question was packaged at the company's Plymouth, Wisconsin-based facility. There have been no confirmed illnesses linked with the Sargento products.

The Sara Lee recall involves 734 cases of cheese distributed in Alabama, California, Louisiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Texas.


Due to the high volume of inquiries on this national cheese recall prompted by Deutsch Kase Haus, LLC, it may take us a little longer than usual to respond to your emails. The cheese types included Colby, cheddar, and Swiss.

The list of other cheese products being recalled by MDS Foods can be found here.

The two cheese products were sold at Meijer stores between November 10, 2016 and February 9, 2017.

Anyone who bought the cheese described above is urged not to eat it, but to throw it out or return it to the customer service desk at any Meijer store for a refund.
