Meijer Recalls Colby Cheeses for Possible Listeria

Meijer is recalling Meijer brand Colby and Colby Jack deli cheeses for possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. The products were sold exclusively through the store’s deli counters. No illnesses have been reported to Meijer from the affected products.

Meijer received notice of possible Listeria contamination from MDS Foods, one of their suppliers. The cheese was made by Deutsch Kase Haus in Middlebury, Indiana. The cheeses were sold in Meijer stores from November 10, 206 to February 9, 2017.

The recalled products are in plastic deli packaging with printed labels that have the UPCs 215927xxxxxx or 215938xxxxxx. The last 6 digits will vary, and are determined by weight since the product was purchased at the deli counter.

If you purchased these cheeses, do not eat them. Throw them away in a sealed container or secure garbage container so other people and animals can’t reach them. Then clean out your refrigerator or freezer with a mild bleach solution to kill any bacteria.

If you ate these products, watch yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. Those symptoms include high fever, stiff neck, severe headache, nausea, and diarrhea. Pregnant women need to be especially careful about this illness, since listeriosis can cause miscarriage or stillbirth. In pregnant women, listeriosis tends to be mild or like the flu. If you do get sick, see your doctor and tell her you ate this recalled product.
