Sara Lee, Sargento Cheese Recalls: Listeria Fears

14 February 2017

Deutsch Kase Haus, LLC of Middlebury, Indiana, notified Sargento that it supplied the company with a Longhorn Colby cheese that may be contaminated with Listeria monocyctogenes. The products were sold exclusively through the store's deli counters.

The affected retail products are Sargento Ultra Thin Sliced Longhorn Colby, 6.84 ounces, UPC 4610000228, with "Sell By" dates of "12APR17B" and "10MAY17B" and Sargento Chef Blends Shredded Nacho & Taco Cheese, 8 ounces, UPC 4610040041, with "Sell By" dates of "H14JUN17" and "H12JUL17".

Fortunately, no such illnesses have been reported as of the time of this publication.

As if that weren't bad enough, Ruth's Salads, a company in North Carolina, is recalling some of its pimento cheese products due to an unrelated but still potentially deadly listeria contamination discovered during official food testing.

It is hoped the new arrivals who survived can be moved back out to sea during the next high tide in daylight on Sunday. Farewell Spit has been described as a whale trap , as its long coastline can be hard for whales to navigate away from.

While the cheese is being recalled out of an abundance of caution, Taylor Farms says it will recall 6,630 pounds of chicken and pork salad products made between February 6 and February 9. Recalled products have codes starting with 215927 or 215938, with the last six digits varying depending on the weight of the deli order.

If you purchased these cheeses, do not eat them. Then clean out your refrigerator or freezer with a mild bleach solution to kill any bacteria. In pregnant women, listeriosis tends to be mild or like the flu.
