Country Fresh recalling products sold in Virginia due to health risk

Amish Classics, other cheese brands follow Sargento with recalls over listeria fears

Officials at Michigan Milk Producers Association, which owns Deutsch Kase Haus, told KPC News they acted "out of an abundance of caution" in prompting the recall after health inspectors in Tennessee found the bacteria in a sample of cheese from a grocery store.

KPC News reported that the Deutsch Kase Haus plant in LaGrange County supplied cheesemaker Sargento Foods with a Colby cheese produced between September 1 and January 27 that was potentially contaminated with Listeria monocyctogenes.

An Indiana plant is at the center of a nationwide recall of popular cheese products due to possible listeria contamination.

No other Sargento products are affected.

Approximately 1,600 cases are reported in the United States every year, with 260 resulting in death, according to the CDC. There are now no reports of anyone getting sick from any of the recalled products. Among those second five are two products sold at Publix in eight-ounce packs, Sargento Off The Block Shredded Fine Cut Cheddar Jack Cheese with a sell by date of July 5, 2017 and Sargento Chef Blends Shredded Taco Cheese with sell by dates of June 14, 2017 and June 28, 2017.

A statement on Sargento's website stated, "At Sargento, food quality and safety is of the utmost importance to everything we do". Sargento supplies some cheese products to Taylor Farms.

Ruth's first recall notice on the U.S. Food & Drug Administration site says random testing by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture discovered its listeria problem. No other Sargento products are affected.

The recalled products include Tuscan Style Mushrooms, Stuffed Mushrooms, Southwest Stuffed Mushrooms, Marketside Garlic Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms and Ready Fresh Go Fruit and Hatch Pepper Cheese.

For specific products and use-by dates can be found at the FDA web page for the recall.

The contaminated products include Amish Classics Colby Deli (Mini) Horns, Amish Classics Colby Fullmoons, Deli Readi Colby Mini Cheese Slices, Deli Made EZ Colby Cheese Slices, Meijer Colby Jack (Mini) Horns and Meijer Colby (Mini) Horns.
