Sargento says they are expanding a voluntary recall of cheese due to potential contamination of Listeria.
They say the cheese was supplied by Deutsch Kase Haus, LLC.
They have terminated their relationship with the supplier, according to their website.
A statement on their website reads:
“We deeply regret any inconvenience or concern this issue has caused,” Sargento Foods Chief Executive Officer Louie Gentine said. “We have high expectations for the quality and safety of our products and hold our suppliers accountable to those same standards. We will continue to evaluate our processes to ensure we remain a leader in food safety and quality.”
both the UPC bar code number AND the associated “Sell By” date on your package of cheese must match this list to be part of the recall.
