U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA):
Lakeview Cheese and Bashas’ Family of Stores Issue Voluntary Cheese Recall
Out of an abundance of caution and with an emphasis on customers’ wellness and safety, Lakeview Cheese and Bashas’ Family of Stores are proactively recalling various types of Colby cheese due to a potential contamination of Listeria monocytogenes. It’s important to note that no illnesses have been reported to date.
The affected products were manufactured by Guggisberg Cheese, Inc. and by Deutsch Kase Haus, LLC of Middlebury, Indiana. The affected products were distributed by Las Vegas-based Lakeview Cheese to Bashas’ Family of Stores, and sold in Bashas’ and Food City supermarkets’ Arizona meat departments under the grocery brands’ private label.
The recall consists of nine Colby cheese products, including fixed-weight and bulk- cut, random-weight items. The products being voluntarily recalled are:
· Food City Colby Longhorn Cheese
· Food City Colby Jack Cheese
· Food City Colby Monterey Cheese
· Random Weight Longhorn Colby Cheese
· Random Weight Cut Co-Jack Cheese
· Random Weight Cut Monterey Jack Cheese
· Random Weight Cut Pepper Jack Cheese
· Random Weight Colby Quarter Longhorn
· Random Weight Colby Horn
Bashas’ and Food City customers who have purchased these products between September 1, 2016 and February 21, 2017 can return them for a full refund. Customers with questions can call Bashas’ Family of Stores’ Customer Service Department at 480-883-6131.
