Sargento Foods Recalls Colby Cheeses Due to Listeria Concerns


There have been no known illnesses reported to Meijer from the product affected by this recall. Taylor Farms establishments are concerned that some product may be in consumers' refrigerators.

The manufacturer, Deutsch Käse House, LLC is recalling Amish Classic Colby Cheese with item numbers 55241 and 55245 that were cut from the suspect product and wrapped at the MDS Foods manufacturing facility in Tulahoma, Tennessee.

Customers who have purchased these products should discard any unused portions.

The recalled cheese was sold in stores from November 10, 2016 to February 9, 2017.

Meijer has announced the recall of two store-brand cheeses sold exclusively through its deli counters due to potential contamination.

The recalled Taylor Farms products - packaged under the Signature Cafe and the H-E-B brands - have use-by dates through February 19, so company and federal officials are concerned unused portions may still be in consumers' homes.

Sargento said on its website that it ordered the recall after being notified by a supplier in IN that its Longhorn Colby cheese may have been contaminated. "We are in full cooperation with the federal Food and Drug Administration to rigorously investigate and resolve this issue".

"The safety of our consumers and our employees is our top priority at Sargento and at the very heart of all we do", read a statement on the website.
