PLYMOUTH, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin-based Sargento Foods Inc., is expanding a voluntary recall of some cheeses due to a possible bacterial contamination from a Middlebury cheese factory.
The company recalled some cheeses Feb. 10, but expanded the recall to include products produced on the same line. Sargento says it also cut ties with Middlebury-based Deutsch Kase Haus, which supplied Longhorn Colby cheese which may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
No illnesses have been confirmed.
The additional products include 8-ounce packages of Sargento’s Sliced Colby, Sliced Muenster, Shredded Reduced Fat Colby-Jack, Shredded Chef Blends 4 Cheese Pizzeria, Artisan Blends Double Cheddar Shredded Cheese, 7.5-ounce packages of Sliced Pepper Jack and 6.67-ounce packages of Sliced Tomato and Basil Jack.
The affected cheeses have various UPC codes and sell-by dates.
