A large cheese recall is forcing multiple companies to toss their products.
Sargento Foods Inc. announced that certain packages of its ultra-thin sliced Longhorn Colby and Chef Blends shredded nacho and taco cheese is being recalled due to listeria concerns. The company says that it’s recalling additional products out of caution including sliced pepper jack cheese, off-the-block shredded and fine-cut cheddar jack cheese.
Listeriosis is a serious infection that’s usually caused by eating contaminated food, and can be more dangerous for pregnant women and older people. Some symptoms include fever, muscle aches and stomach problems.
Sargento says there have been no reports of illnesses, but you can go to their website and check the UPC code on their cheese to see whether it’s affected.
