Cheese is delicious. Salad with cheese is also delicious.
Sargento - one of the largest cheesemakers in the U.S.
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.
Out of "an abundance of caution", Sargento also recalled five more products packaged at the same facility.
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.
Sargento said on its website that it ordered the recall after being notified by a supplier in IN that its Longhorn Colby cheese may have been contaminated. Cheese lovers should throw out: Sliced Colby-Jack Cheese, Sliced Pepper Jack Cheese, Chef Blends Shredded Taco Cheese, Off The Block Shredded Fine Cut Colby-Jack Cheese and Off The Block Shredded Fine Cut Cheddar Jack Cheese.
Customers who purchased the recalled cheeses can contact Sargento at 1-800-Cheese (243-3737) to begin the refund process.
Chef blends shredded taco cheese.
The two cheese products were sold at Meijer stores between November 10, 2016 and February 9, 2017.
