Productos Tita Corp. of New York is recalling fresh cheese products because the milk used to make them was improperly pasteurized. Fresh cheeses must be made from pasteurized milk in the United States. Aged cheeses made from raw milk are relatively safe, according to a study published in May 2012.
Recalled cheeses are called “Quesito Colombiano Columbian Cheese.” The cheeses were sold in plastic pouches or rectangular clear plastic tubs under the brand name “Tita”. The labels have the plant code 36-8440. All date codes of those products are being recalled. The cheeses were sold in the metropolitan New York area.
