Food Recall: Sargento Cheese Sold at Meijer Faces Possible Contamination

14 February 2017

Cheese is delicious. Salad with cheese is also delicious. The UPC number is under the bar code on the back of your Sargento cheese package.

Sargento - one of the largest cheesemakers in the U.S.

Deutsch Kase Haus, LLC of Middlebury, Ind. has notified Sargento Foods Inc. that a specialty Longhorn Colby cheese they supplied to Sargento must be recalled due to a potential contamination of Listeria monocytogenes. The company reports that the products, which are sold exclusively through its deli counters, may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Possible listeria contamination has led to the recall of Sargento Ultra Thin Sliced Longhorn Colby and Chef Blends Shredded Nacho & Taco Cheeses, as well as Sara Lee Sliced Monterey Jack Cheese with Jalapeno Peppers and Sliced Colby Jack Cheese.

The recalled products are in plastic deli packaging with printed labels that have the UPCs 215927xxxxxx or 215938xxxxxx.

Out of "an abundance of caution", Sargento also recalled five more products packaged at the same facility.

As for the salad recall, Taylor Farms says in a notice to the USDA that it was informed by Sargento on Friday of the potential listeria contamination of its Bevel Shred Pepperjack cheese. The cheeses were sold in Meijer stores from November 10, 206 to February 9, 2017.

Customers should stop using the product and either dispose of it or return it to the customer service desk at any Meijer store for a full refund.
