Product Recall Notice: Sargento Cheeses


EXPANDED Product Recall Notice: Sargento Cheeses

Sargento Foods Inc. is voluntarily expanding the recall of cheese supplied to us by Deutsch Kase Haus, LLC due to potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes that originated from the supplier’s facility. There have been no confirmed illnesses.
Out of concern for the health and well-being of consumers, we have terminated our relationship with Deutsch Kase Haus, which supplied Sargento with the affected Longhorn Colby cheese.

Out of an abundance of caution, in addition to the products recalled on February 10, 2017, we are also voluntarily recalling the following Central Grocers products which were packaged on the same lines:

  • CENTRAL ITEM 84518 Sargento Artisan Blends Double Cheddar Shredded Cheese, 8oz., UPC 4610040094, Sell By dates: H09JUN17 and H08JUN17

We are also adding “Sell By” dates to some of the products that were previously recalled on February 10, 2017:

  • CENTRAL ITEM 84500 Sargento Chefs Blend Taco Blend Shredded Cheese, 8oz., UPC 4610040002 Sell By dates: H11MAY17 and H01JUN17

No other Sargento products that Central Grocers supplies are currently affected by this recall.

All affected products at retail should be immediately pulled from point of sale and put on hold. A third party agency, AMS, will be personally stopping in all affected stores to ensure all affected product is pulled from the store shelves, destroyed and disposed of appropriately. A certificate of destruction must be completed and submitted for reimbursement.
