Heavenly Blue Cheese Recalled for Possible Salmonella

Flat Creek Farm & Dairy of Georgia is recalling 200 pounds of Heavenly blue cheese because of possible Salmonella enteritidis contamination. As of yesterday, more than 90% of the product has been collected or destroyed. No illnesses have been reported to date.

The cheese is packed in clear plastic and ranges in sizes from 1/2 pound to whole wheels. The lot code is 130912XHB on the front of the package. It was distributed in certain parts of Alabama, Georgia, and Florida and via three online orders, which have all been notified.

The problem was discovered through routine sampling by the Georgia Department of Agriculture. The company has identified the source of the problem and eliminated it from future batches. Salmonella enteritidis can cause serious infections in young children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems. Symptoms include high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. If you purchased this product, return it to the place of purchase for a refund.
