Kradjian Imp. Company Recalling Tresse and Shinglish Cheese

Kradjian Imp. Company of Glendale, California is recalling 231 cases of Cedar brand Tresse Cheese and Cedar brand Shinglish cheese because it may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, a bacteria that can cause serious and sometimes life-threatening infections. The cheeses were sold in Southern California to Mediterranean specialty markets.

Product details:

  • Cedar brand firm unripened Tresse Cheese in 16-ounce containers. UPC number is 78546 01000.
  • Cedar brand Shinglish firm unripened cheese, with UPC number 78546 10000.
  • Both varieties of cheese are vacuum packed.
  • Packages have the picture of a green cedar tree.
  • The cheeses were delivered before November 13, 2011.

These cheeses were manufactured and subsequently recalled by Fromagerie Marie Kade in Quebec, Canada. Tresse cheese is similar to string cheese. It’s braided and sometimes contains nigella seeds, which are tiny and dark colored. Shinglish cheese is a salty, firm and spicy cheese shaped into a half round. It’s often coated with herbs.

Listeria infections can be fatal in young children, the elderly, those with compromised immune systems, and those with chronic diseases. Listeria can be especially devastating to pregnant women, causing stillbirth and miscarriages. Healthy people can also suffer with headache, stiffness, fever, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Most healthy people recover in a few days.

Consumers who have purchased this cheese should return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. For questions, please call 1-866-825-2633 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday.
